The Development Frontier: Essays in Applied Economics
Bauer (emeritus, London School of Economics) describes and analyzes major features of the emergence of less developed countries from subsistence to exchange economies, and from their subsequent advance. The 17 essays focus on significant topics and issues that are neglected or treated inadequately or inappropriately in the literature on economic development. Six of the essays were written specifically for this volume, two are reprinted with only minor changes, and the remainder are substantially revised versions of previous publications.
