About this book

As most developing countries emerge from the depth of the debt crisis, the context of the Cold War, and totalitarian or authoritarian forms of government, the development strategies that will take shape in the 1990s will impart significantly different roles to the market, the state, and civil organizations compared to the post development decades. Simultaneously, important advances have been made in development theory, particularly in institutional economics and political economy. This book takes stock of these changes in both theory and practice and explores implications for the redefinition of alternative styles of development.
