MEDIA REVIEWS

"This lucid study is a rare find: an analysis of a developing economy that successfully integrates the full range of development issues, including economic growth, competitiveness, poverty, social equity, agriculture, industry, and external and domestic finance, and places them all within their historical and political context. Moreover, this study accomplishes this feat for an intricate economy that defies easy understanding. I particularly recommend this book for undergraduate and graduate students in development economics: they will find it an inspiring performance."

--Paul Beckerman


"This thought-provoking book will be of great interest to policymakers and readers in general searching for new answers to the difficult dilemmas that have haunted the recent history of Peru and other Latin American countries."

--Raul Hopkins, Journal of Development Studies


"Sheahan is an economist with a distinguished record of scholarship on Latin America, and like his previous work, this volume is clearly written, cogently documented, and expresses humane sensibilities and an independent viewpoint."

--F. S. Weaver, CHOICE


"Sheahan's study is unusual for its knowledgeable and insightful discussion of political economy issues and the relevant history. It is accessible both to specialists and generalists, to economists and non-economists, and will be very rewarding to all of the above."
