'The most important book about the world economy to be published in years.' -'Prospect' 'Highly relevant to today's debates about the role of policies and institutions in development as well as the role of government in general... It is a great contribution, not least for its historical approach, and will continue to influence the debate on development.' -Seb Bytyci, 'ID: International Dialogue, A Multidisciplinary Journal of World Affairs' 'This book is a joy: a fantastically useful teaching aid...a very necessary historical conscience in an age of amnesia.' -'The Business Economist' 'This is an intriguing book that raises important issues. Recommended.' -J. M. Nowakowski, Muskingum College, in 'Choice'
