The Process of Economic Development

Acknowledgments

As is always the case, this book could not have been written without the help of many individuals. As is also the case, none should be held responsible in any way for the existing book.

To begin, we sincerely thank the five anonymous reviewers who labored over the needed revisions for the second edition offering detailed and well-thought-out comments. Their guidance, prompting and misgivings, as well as their praise, helped greatly in establishing the broad parameters for this edition.

Next, we thank our students. Nothing, in the academic world, could be more immediate than the give-and-take of the classroom along with the painful self-knowledge that arises from the act of reading exams. On the whole we have been pleased with the results of the first edition after many years of "testing" it with numerous students. We have trimmed, adjusted and amplified (and in some cases jettisoned) chapters on the basis of our students needs and wants. To our surprise, the new world of the internet has created the possibility for students around the globe to comment on the book. These serendipitous virtual encounters have also commonly resulted in new insights-some of which found their way into the second edition.

Many colleagues played a role in the years of research that have gone into the preparation and writing of the second edition-far more than we can formally recognize here. Nonetheless, for assistance (which came in various forms) we wish to thank-in no particular order-the following individuals: M. Shahid Alam, Paul Dale Bush, Al Campbell, Juan Castaings Teillery, Eugenia Correa, Willy Cortez, Enrique Dussel Peters, David Fairris, Sasan Fayazmanesh, Raul Fernandez, Ross Gandy, Rodolfo Garcia Zamora, Alicia Gíron, Arturo Guillén, Martin Hart-Landsberg, Peter Ho, Barney Hope, Marc Humbert, Kathy Kopinak, Fred Lee, Oscar Muñoz, Robert Pollin, Skye Stephenson, Carolina Stefoni, Miguel Angel Rivera, Cesar Ross, Howard Stein, Linda Shaffer, Janet Tanski, Marc Tool, Mayo Toruño, Gregorio Vidal, and Eduardo Zepeda.

At Routledge we have experienced the best of all possible worlds-excellent editors, ever forgiving of the interminable delays in meeting deadlines. Editors Terry Clague and Robert Langham have facilitated the second edition with aplomb and dispatch. Alan Jarvis, who first accepted our outline for the original manuscript, along with Alison Kirk and Kate Smith, who edited the first edition, are not to be forgotten. Unlike so many in the corporatized world of publishing, Routledge has given us wide latitude in every aspect of this book, sensible editing and clear, crisp communication. What else could we ask?
