Description

This innovative textbook provides an introduction to economic development in both an historical and contemporary, comparative, and systems framework. The text takes a regional approach, with the theory developed within regional contexts. This leads to the second innovative aspect, an emphasis on institutional structures unique to each region. Third, the authors analyze the development process within the historical context of each region, and consider institutional inheritance from both the pre-colonial and colonial eras and in contemporary times. Thoroughly classroom tested, the text requires no previous courses in economics, although basic principles of economics would be useful. An Instructor's Manual with discussion questions, a test bank, and PowerPoint slides is available online to instructors who adopt the text.show more
