Editorial Reviews

?Ezeala-Harrison sucessfully bridges the gap between the theoretical and policy approaches to economic development in this compact volume....Theoretical issues are very well developed and policy issues are carefully laid out. This reviewer was impressed with the breadth and depth of real life experiences from which examples are drawn. Perhaps the most distinctive feature is the careful and detailed attention givien to environmental issues throughout the book. Highly recommended for students, reearchers, and practitioners of developmental economics.?-Choice
