Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415097231, Paperback)

The third edition of Introduction to Development Economics provides a detailed analysis of the major economic issues confronting less developed countries. Throughout, the author keeps a balance between the theories of economic growth and the realities of economic development. Although the basics remain, the past few years have witnessed changes in emphasis and the rise of new areas of interest.
The new edition takes account of these changes. These include:
Development and the environment
The international debt crisis
Endogenous growth
The impact of foreign aid
Fiscal reforms
Human capital
Problems of trade liberalization
The book is divided into four sections and is written in a straightforward style. Many new tables have been added to provide up-to-date statistical data, whilst more technical sections have been relegated to appendices.
