From the Back Cover
Todaro and Smith, Economic Development 11/e
Accessible theory, relevant policy issues, and the latest data and research
Economic Development, presents the latest thinking in economic development with the clear and comprehensive approach that has been so well received in previous editions.
The pace and scope of economic development continues its rapid, uneven, and sometimes-unexpected evolution. This text explains the unprecedented progress that has been made in the developing world but fully confronts the enormous problems and challenges that remain to be addressed in the years ahead. The text shows the wide diversity across the developing world, and the differing positions in the global economy held by developing countries. The principles of development economics are key to understanding how we got to where we are, why many development problems are so difficult to solve, and the design of economic development policy and programs as we look ahead. [From the preface]
NEW TO THIS EDITION
· Global crises. A major new section of the text addresses the potential longer-term impacts of the global financial crisis on economic development, examining conditions that caused the crisis, its aftermath, and possible broader implications and potential differences across developing nations and regions.
· Violent conflict. The new edition provides an entirely new major section on the causes and consequences of violent conflict, post-conflict recovery and development, and prevention of conflict through an improved understanding of its major causes.
· New case studies. Two new full-length end-of-chapter comparative case studiesare introduced to address current topics and findings, and to broaden geographic coverage.
'In attempting the impossible task of covering the empirical diversity of Third World experiences and institutions, trying to keep up with the policy debate, and very important and very difficult, not pushing an ideological line but allowing students to make up their own minds it is streets ahead of all the direct competition I have seen, '
-Paul Mosley University of Sheffield.
'The strengths of the book are that it is comprehensive, well written and accessible to students who dont have an in-depth understanding of formal economics.'
-Matthew Cole Birmingham University.
This Book has been and still is a classic.
-Arild Angelsen, Agricultural University of Norway.

- Poor structure
- Repetitive Concept
You start reading the Contents and would think oh wow that will be a great read, once you start reading you feel like you are reading the same concept under different headlines,...)
But you will learn something out of it:
- models are well explained
- quantity over quality - apparently very important ;)
