Summary This volume is a collection of original essays written to honor Professor W. Arthur Lewis, 1979 co-winner of the Nobel Prize in economics. The authors, an international group of distinguished scholars, provide new perspectives on many of the most important theoretical and policy questions in economic development. Unified to a rare degree by their approach to the subject of development and by the high quality and rigor of their analysis, the contributors address a varied set of specific issues reflecting Professor Lewis' research interests.
