Development Economics Book Description:

Broad beliefs about the economics of ‘developing countries’ and of the development process have changed considerably since the subject became of wide interest in the 1950s; due largely to changes in the world and in the application of economic policies within developing countries. Subjects such as environment, gender, poverty, famine and globalization have come to be of increasingly important public interest. The extreme divergence of experience among regions of the world has also made it more and more questionable whether it even makes sense to think of a single and distinctive ‘economics of developing countries’. This textbook presents a concise and up-to-date examination of the field of development economics, bringing together historical perspectives, current issues and policy implications. Each chapter can be read as a stand-alone unit, or as part of the wider economic debates presented throughout the book.

Development Economics Book Description:

Gerard Roland's new text, Development Economics, is the first undergraduate text to recognize the role of institutions in understanding development and growth. Through a series of chapters devoted to specific sets of institutions, Roland examines the effects of institutions on growth, property rights, market development, and the delivery of public goods and services and focuses. With the most comprehensive and up to date treatment of institutions on development, Roland explores the important questions of why some countries develop faster than others and why some fail while others are successful.

A History of Development Economics Thought Book Description:

This book explores the history of economic development thought, with an emphasis on alternative approaches in macro development economics. Given that the pioneers of development economics in the 1940s and 1950s drew inspiration from classical political economists, this book opens with a review of key classical scholars who wrote about the progress of the wealth of nations. In reviewing the thinking of the pioneers and those that followed, both their theories of development and underdevelopment are discussed. Overall, the book charts the evolution of development economic thought from the early developmentalists and structuralists, through to the neo-Marxist approach and radical development theory, the neo-liberal counter revolution, and the debate between new developmentalists and neo-liberal scholars. It ends with an assessment of the state of the field today. This book will be of interest to all scholars and students interested in the evolution of development economics.

Development Economics Book Description:

Following the 2007–2009 financial and economic crises, there has been an unprecedented demand among economics students for an alternative approach, which offers a historical, institutional and multidisciplinary treatment of the discipline. Economic development lends itself ideally to meet this demand, yet most undergraduate textbooks do not reflect this. This book will fill this gap, presenting all the core material needed to teach development economics in a one semester course, while also addressing the need for a new economics and offering flexibility to instructors. Rather than taking the typical approach of organizing by topic, the book uses theories and debates to guide its structure. This will allow students to see different perspectives on key development questions, and therefore to understand more fully the contested nature of many key areas of development economics. The book can be used as a standalone textbook on development economics, or to accompany a more traditional text.

No scholarly work survives for almost half a century without continuing to be current, relevant and authoritative; a considerable task in our fast changing world. Edition number 10 does not disappoint, and will continue to be of great value to current generations of students interested in the economics of development. It is stimulating, informative and comprehensive; as with previous editions, it also maintains rigour whilst continuing to be accessible.’ – Sir David Greenaway, University of Nottingham, UK ‘Economics of Development is by far the best undergraduate textbook in development economics. The new edition expands coverage of the material to include important and relevant topics such as the Sustainable Development Goals, multidimensional poverty, health and nutrition, microcredit, climate change and randomised control trials, and should be an essential reference for students and scholars alike.’ – Kunal Sen, University ofManchester, UK ‘Successive editions of Tony Thirlwall’s textbook on the economics of development have become classic guides to the subject – comprehensive, clear and dispassionate. This updated edition is again outstanding, an essential contemporary introduction to the topic.’ – Frances Stewart, University of Oxford, UK ‘This splendid book, which has gone from strength to strength through ten comprehensive editions, is unquestionably the finest available introduction to the challenging and ever-evolving subject of economic development.’ – Prema-chandra Athukorala, Australian National University, Australia A.P.
