Economic Development: A Regional, Institutional, and Historical Approach

Front Cover
The second edition of this innovative and affordable book integrates environmental and financial sustainability into its distinctive regional approach. By focusing on political economy in its cultural, religious and historical roots, as well as leadership decisions, it spurs critical thinking. Working through the unique development paths of individual countries, the authors foster integrative thinking and a strong sense of realism about both the prospects and challenges of economic development in the rapidly evolving global economy. The book is exceptional in both its theoretical nuance and accessible writing. An Instructors Manual with discussion questions, a test bank, and PowerPoint slides is available online to professors who adopt the text.
