From the Publisher"Much more than a useful guide, it is an elaborate work inpolitical economy that succeeds in the skilful task of puttingstudies about development on an independent baseline, situating itat the heart of the 'new political economy'."
Political Studies Review
"Payne and Phillips make a robust case for (re)integrating analysisof development into the intellectual project of political economy,anchored in classical theory. In a world with increasingly evidentlimits, this comprehensive intervention is timely and critical,offering historical-theoretical support for a holistic approach todevelopment."
Philip McMichael, Cornell University
"'Development' is the name we give to the third most importantset of issues facing mankind, after nuclear proliferation andclimate change. Anthony Payne and Nicola Phillips explain theevolution of the intellectual debate about the subject, startingwith the eighteenth century classical political economists andcontinuing up to the present. Comprehensive and elegantly written,their study is about the best available between two covers."
Robert Wade, London School of Economics
"This is a timely, valuable and important book which clarifiessignificantly the often vaguely used concept of 'development' byplacing it firmly in the contemporary global context and anchoringit authoritatively in a multi-disciplinary understanding of theinteractions of political and economic processes."
Adrian Leftwich, University of York
"This book makes a refreshing contribution to the understandingof the development debates and, more importantly, it rehabilitatesthe concept by rooting it in the broader intellectual enterprise ofpolitical economy. A most welcome resource. A job well done!"
