From the Inside Flap:


"Essentials of Development Economics emphasizes the substantive over the technical, presenting a broad overview of key topics in language that is accessible to students who have a limited background in economics and mathematics. I have been looking for a book like this for years."
―Aashish Mehta, Associate Professor of Global and International Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara

"The strength of this book is that it takes old, recent, and new topics and combines them into a very concise reader that is informative and interesting. Other books are too big, too old, or too dry. This book is none of these. It's extremely student-friendly."
―Bruce Wydick, Professor of Economics, University of San Francisco, and author of Games in Economic Development

“A creative and flexible alternative to traditional textbooks.... I plan to use this book in my own course.”
―Edward Miguel, Oxfam Professor in Environmental and Resource Economics, University of California, Berkeley, and author of Africa’s Turn?
