Academic introduction to development and capitalism
March 11, 2013 11:19 AM Subscribe
I need to begin to familiarize myself with the academic literature in two areas I haven't studied in a class: a) definitions of capitalism and transitions to capitalism, and b) economic development, particularly mega-projects and state-supported development efforts. I'm looking for good introductions to each of these, like an upper-year undergraduate textbook or standard handbook, where I can get a feel for the major ideas in each of these areas and maybe some key references without having to do a complete literature survey. Any suggestions?
