Economics of Development is renowned for its accessibility and emphasis on the real-world perspectives of developing countries, using concrete empirical data and case studies to illustrate key concepts. Integrating new coverage of modern growth and human resources theory throughout and with five entirely new chapters, the Sixth Edition represents the most extensive revision of this classic text to date.
