The economic and social development of the world’s poorest countries, and the eradication of primary poverty, is one of the greatest challenges facing the world. This tenth edition of Tony Thirlwall’s classic textbook Economics of Development, now co-written with Penélope Pacheco-López, provides a clear, comprehensive and rigorous introduction to the theory of development economics and the experience of developing countries.

Highlights of the new edition include:
• A brand new chapter on human capital: education, nutrition, health, and the role of women in development
• New material on the Sustainable Development Goals, the measurement of poverty, and the multidimensional poverty index
• Discussion of randomized control trials 
• The role of structural change in economic development
• New IMF lending facilities 
An ideal textbook for students of economics and other social sciences, this edition contains up-to-date statistics and data, case examples and website references.
