Overview

Why have some developing countries industrialized and become more prosperous rapidly while others have not? Focusing on South Korea, Brazil, India, and Nigeria, this study compares the characteristics of fairly functioning states and explains why states in some parts of the developing world are more effective. It emphasizes the role of colonialism in leaving behind more or less effective states, and the relationship of these states with business and labor in helping explain comparative success in promoting economic progress.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Elegantly written and impeccably argued, this book superbly summarizes and synthesizes the major works on the role of states in development. This is an insightful, thought-provoking volume. Highly recommended." - CHOICE May 2005

"This is a systematic, clear and informative piece of comparative research that should be read by academics and policymakers interested in understanding the roles of different types of states as accelerators and hinderers of development." - Pacific Affairs
