In addition to the country cases, it presents regional and overall syntheses that cover orthodox vs. heterodox policies; the importance of capability, primaryexports, diversification and financing; managing diversity; the role of institutions and governance; and human development.The book reveals much diversity in successful development strategies offered by the various select countries: for example, the "disinterested-government" political economy of China; the democratically supported, high-service-sector development approach of India; the "Washington-Consensus-based"reforms of Ghana and China; the diversification strategies of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Oman; the dynamic orthodox-heterodox strategy of Malaysia and Vietnam; the effective natural-resource management of Botswana, Oman, Bahrain and the UAE; the social-sector underpinnings ofdevelopment in Costa Rica and Tunisia; and the democratic political system of managing diversity in India. This refreshing approach to studying development will interest researchers, teachers, students, development practitioners and policymakers alike.
