Development and Underdevelopment

John T Passe-Smith Mitchell A. Seligson
Price: $ 24.5

Praise for the previous editions:
"One of the most comprehensive volumes yet produced on the causes of income inequality between and within countries.... Seligson and Passé-Smith have compiled a brilliant selection of literature which is a must for anyone wishing to better understand the elusive concepts of development and underdevelopment."¿Gareth Elliot, South African Journal of International Affairs

"The selection of materials is excellent, and the brief introductions to each selection are deft and informative. Impressively, space has also been found for critiques of the most important positions.... The book also provides a convenient and enjoyable review for those who may have followed the literature as it emerged."¿Journal of Developing Areas

"This high-quality collection ... deals in a balanced way both with internal and international inequality."¿Choice

Presenting both classic pieces and the most up-to-date arguments in the debates about issues of economic growth and inequality, Development and Underdevelopment is a guide to understanding the causes and dynamics of the persistent income gap between rich and poor countries, as well as the rich and poor within the poor countries. The editors' short introductions to each reading, highlighting the significance of the selections, remain a key feature of this new edition.

Mitchell A. Seligson is Daniel H. Wallace Professor of Political Science at the University of Pittsburgh. John T Passé-Smith is associate professor of political science at the University of Central Arkansas.
