Editorial Reviews

Review


"The internal consistency and completeness of each essay and of the whole volume, the simplicity with which complex interdisciplinary arguments are exposed, and the rich bibliographies that accompany each chapter, make this volume an invaluable manual for graduate students specializing in development or international economics, and informative and stimulating reading for any economist interested in the field."--The Review of Political Economy

By A Customer on October 13, 2001
Format: Paperback
This is a very good book on a complex subject. It's full of interesting and cutting edge perpectives on development economics. However, the book leaves out an important viewpoint, which can be found in The Elusive Quest for Growth by Easterly.
