  7. Theories of Migration

    Theories of Migration

    Edited by Robin Cohen
    In Theories of Migration, Robin Cohen has brought together a substantive body of scholarship from many disciplines and schools of thought which address the failure to produce one satisfactory general theory of migration. Attempts to construct a theory of migration have been constrained by the considerable variety of migrations which have to be considered – professional and unskilled, compelled and voluntary, settler and temporary, internal and international, and finally, illegal and legal. Perspectives arising from all the major social science disciplines are represented in this volume which features over 25 articles originally published in a wide array of professional disciplines.

  10. ECONOMIC GROWTH

    ECONOMIC GROWTH

    Edited by Gene M. Grossman
    This new two volume set contains major recent theoretical and empirical contributions to the debate on long-term economic growth. Research on long-term growth was revitalized in recent years as it became clear that countries were not converging in income levels as was predicted by the neoclassical growth model. Also differences in growth rates across countries seemed systematic and predictable. These findings led to the development of models of ‘endogenous growth’ through which a country’s long-run growth rate is determined by economic and policy variables. Learn More

  12. DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICS

    DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICS

    Edited by Deepak Lal
    This four volume work provides a comprehensive and authoritative selection of articles in development economics. The first two volumes cover issues concerning growth, agriculture and human resources. The third and fourth volumes cover industrialization, foreign trade and foreign capital, stabilisation policies and the emerging new area of political economy. Taken together they provide the basis for a comprehensive course on development economics at the third year undergraduate or first year graduate level. They show why development economics is a subject marked both by its obvious practical relevance as well as the many theoretical insights it has provided for other branches of economics. There are detailed introductions by the editor – a leading development economist with wide experience in both the practice and the teaching of the subject. Besides containing detailed bibliographies, these introductions place the readings in the volumes into a coherent context which is suitable to structure a one year course on the subject. As such it should be of interest to students, teachers and researchers. As policy concerns have been kept clearly in mind in the selections, the readings should also be of use to policymakers in governments and international organizations, for whom debates on development are likely to be a central concern.
