444 pages | SAGE India
Sing Chew and Robert Denemark have edited this festschrift to pay homage to Gunder Frank and his many years of struggle to offer an alternative conception of development…. Even though many of the [contributors] do not fully concur with his formulations, it is quite possible that Frank would feel comfortable with how the issues have been discussed. That the essays range so widely and deeply across the many aspects of development economics that Frank pioneered is a fitting tribute to this activist scholar.
