'Throughout the pages of Economic Development, Education, and Transnational Corporations, Mark Hanson presents his arguments in a manner that is addressed toward education, development economics, and international business researchers and practitioners. By combining theory from these three fields, Hanson formulates a coherent theory of how economic development strategies can be designed and successfully implement by LDC governments. The book also highlights strategies that should be avoided, including those related to deficiencies in planning and failures in implementation.' - James Jackson, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA
