Essays in Development Economics collects many of Jagdish
Bhagwati's writings that have established him as a major postwar
developmental economist. The selection is diverse and highlights
the close relationship and mutual reinforcement in Bhagwati's
research between economic theory, empirical validation, and policy
debate.Volume I, Wealth and Poverty, addresses domestic or internal
development problems. Its 22 essays are divided into five parts
covering Development Theory and Strategy; Economic Structure:
Regularities and Explanations; Class Structure, Poverty, and
Redistrbution; Technology and Employment; and Eminent Economists:
Sketches and Commentary.Volume 2, Dependence and Interdependence,
deals with international or external problems and its 20 essays are
in four parts covering North-South Issues; Developmental Strategy:
Import Substitution versus Export Promotion; Foreign Assistance;
and International Migration and Investment.Within each volume, the
essays are topically grouped and preceded by brief introductions by
the author discussing his current views of the nature of the
contributions and the relationship among them. In several cases,
previously unpublished papers or postscripts to previously
published papers have been added to round out the sections.Jagdish

and policy of development and of international trade. Gene M.
