Index.

"The really attractive thing about this book is that it discusses economic development in an evolutionary perspective, with a very detailed catalog of ideal types, but always in a unified theoretical framework. The student will learn a lot about historical development paths, and even more about economic theory." Robert M. Solow, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
* Innovative tracing of development theory and its contribution to contemporary analysis.
* Explains why, not how, East Asian and Latin American development experience has differed so markedly in the postwar era.
