9780521817639: The Dynamics of Socio-Economic Development: An Introduction

Why are poor countries poor and rich countries rich? How are wealth and poverty related to changes in nutrition, health, life expectancy, education, population growth and politics? This modern, non-technical introduction to development economics takes a quantitative and comparative approach to contemporary debates, examining historical, institutional, demographic, sociological, political, cultural and ecological factors. Chapters contain comparative statistics from twenty-nine developing countries and assume no prior knowledge of economics.

Review:

"This monumental study is historically grounded, balanced, nuanced, rigorous, eclectic, and reader-friendly. All serious scholars and practitioners of economic development will want to have a copy on their shelves. The volume is also ideally suited as a text for a development economics course." --Hal Hill, H.W. Arndt Professor of Southeast Asian Economies, Australian National University
