Abstract:

This book is designed for use in courses that focus on the economics of development in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, as well as the "transition" countries of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union now classified as developing countries. It is written for students who have had some basic training in economics and for those with little or no formal economics background ...

Yet the material is sufficiently broad in scope ... to satisfy any undergraduate and some graduate economics requirements in the field of development.-Pref
