About this book
This widely used textbook is specifically designed for students of economics and the social sciences who are taking a first course in economic development with a background knowledge of micro and macro economics. Written in a simple but rigorous way, it has many examples to help the student, and provide a set of questions for discussion and review at the end of each chapter. In this extensively revised fifth edition of Growth and Development, all the statistics have been updated and new institutional material has been added. In addition there is a much extended discussion of the world debt problem, of financial liberalisation, and of the concept of sustainable development.
