Economic Development is the leading textbook in this field, providing a complete and balanced introduction to the requisite theory, the driving policy issues, and the latest research. Todaro and Smith take a policy-oriented approach, presenting economic theory in the context of critical policy debates and country-specific case studies so students see how theory relates to the problems and prospects of developing countries. In the Tenth Edition, the authors integrate new discussions of hot topic research areas such as gender, colonialism, and natural resources, and they update the extensive applications, data, and country-specific case studies throughout.
