Dani Rodrik, Ford Foundation Professor of International Political Economy, Harvard Kennedy School Convergence, structural change, institutions, capabilities such keywords form the skeleton of contemporary development theory. This fascinating book adds concrete, historical flesh to the concepts. It demonstrates the diversity of development paths and provides hope of continued economic advancement, even if under different models than have prevailed to date.
Stephen Broadberry, Professorial Fellow and a Professor of Economic History, Nuffield College, Oxford University This excellent volume brings together leading scholars with interests in long term economic dynamics in the borderland between economic history and development economics to provide a thought-provoking overview of the patterns of economic development and an agenda for policy. It will be valuable to policy-makers and academics alike.
James A. Robinson, University Professor, University of Chicago, Harris School of Public Policy One of the most intellectually exciting areas of social science is the fusion of economic history and economic development. This important book brings some of the main practitioners of this revolution together to reflect on the progress made.
Rob Cramb, Professor of Agricultural Development, University of Queensland Structural transformation of agrarian economies has been recognised as essential to escaping poverty. It is one of the few generalisations that development economists can confidently make! Perhaps because of this, policy analysts have been overly prescriptive and dogmatic about the path a given country should take, holding up miracle cases as universal models. The great feature of this book is to highlight the context-dependence, diversity, and dynamism of
development pathways. Bringing the insights of leading economic historians to the practical issues of agricultural and industrial development, this collection examines the contingency of the transformation process across three continents. The result is a deeply insightful contribution to both economic history
and development policy.
Gloria Quiroga, Economic History Review The book, written by experts on the subject, will be of great interest to researchers of development economics and to economic historians; there are even chapters that can be of interest to a less specialized public, because they treat these topics in a rigorous but clear and simple way.
