"A valuable contribution to policy makers in third world countries; and students of development economics."--John Gafar, C.W. Post College
"A very original, readable textbook that introduces all the traditional topics in development economics in a way that students will find lively and interesting. Osterfeld's political economy framework, his discussions of important issues such as corruption, property rights, the environment,
and the legal context, and the attention he pays to the key variables in development--food, resources, and population--also distinguish this book from most of the others in the field."--Anil B. Deolalikar, University of Washington
