With an emphasis on long-term growth and development, this book provides historical accounts of the development strategies of a select set of advanced countries. Each case study typically presents the country's "successes" and the root causes of those successes. Organized into three parts, it covers The Nordics (Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark), Other Industrially Advanced Countries (Japan, Ireland, and Switzerland), and Transition Economies (Czech, Hungary, and Poland). Although the book stresses that development strategies are, by and large, country and context-specific, the historical accounts are full of recurrent themes, which should provide useful lessons for developing countries and emerging economies."--Publisher's website."@en ;
