This unique book provides a comprehensive survey of the major economic issues that have helped shape the modern world. It includes discussions of the latest research findings in the international economic development literature and scrutinises some of the most important debates in contemporary economics. Brian Snowdon examines the many controversies relating to long-run growth and development, problems of transitions from socialism to capitalism, international competitiveness and the impacts of globalisation. To shed light on these critical issues Brian Snowdon interviewed eleven leading economists who are featured in this book: Daron Acemoglu, Alberto Alesina, Padma Desai, William Easterly, Stanley Fischer, Janos Kornai, Michael Porter, Dani Rodrik, Jeffrey Sachs, Xavier Sala-i-Martin and Jeffrey Williamson. Globalisation, Development and Transition provides an all-encompassing guide to the contemporary literature on economic development and related fields, as well as an extensive and up-to-date list of references. It will be an essential resource for all scholars and students of economics, especially those with an interest in economic growth and development, economic history, trade and globalisation, and the economics of transition.

Review:

‘By reading this book, students should be able to grasp the historical background of current theory in development economics. The book provides useful supplementary reading for courses on development economics. Moreover, the comprehensive bibliography at the end is valuable not only for students, but also for researchers.’ Author: Hiroki Nogami, The Developing Economies

‘Brian Snowdon is a superb economist and chronicler who tells us about critical issues and principal players through insightful interviews that immediately command attention. He is the indispensable economist whom we can all read, and be both entertained and instructed.’ Author: Jagdish Bhagwati, Columbia University, US

‘This excellent volume can be read with pleasure and profit by everyone, whether novice or expert, who wants to understand the historical experience of economic growth.’ Author: Nick Crafts, University of Warwick, UK

‘These topics are of the utmost interest today to anyone concerned with the political and economic scene. Brian Snowdon has put together a set of conversations of the type he is already well known for, drawing out the key points from the key researchers in these areas. He has complemented these with an erudite but thoroughly accessible survey of each topic in the three opening chapters. Well done!’ Author: Patrick Minford, Cardiff University, UK

‘An excellent survey of modern work in economic development. Brian Snowdon has found the recipe for successful survey books in economics: a wide-ranging introduction setting the context, a knowledgeable interviewer asking probing questions, and top-rate specialists in development explaining their views.’ Author: David Colander, Middlebury College, US

Brian Snowdon, Senior Teaching Fellow, Department of Economics and Finance, Durham University, UK
