Advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and social scientists interested in a wide-ranging but concise review of contemporary theories of social and economic development will find this second edition invaluable. The coverage spans the disciplines of sociology, psychology, economics, political science, political economy, geography, and management. The theories are organized by "level of analysis"--individual, organizational, societal, and international--to provide the reader with a larger organizational scheme in which to understand the theoretical explanations and arguments and to emphasize the importance of developing linkages among the different levels. Some of the new topics discussed include: globalization, transnational organizational structures, debt, the transition from socialism to capitalism and human development.

Instructors should emphasize, and capitalize on, the book's level of analysis framework....Written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students with some background in the social sciences, this book makes an excellent text for courses in social and economic development, social change, and political economy.??Teaching Sociology
