About the Author
David Landes is Emeritus Professor of Economics and History at Harvard University and the author of The Wealth and Poverty of Nations (1998).
Reviews
Powerful and lucid.... There are few historians who would not be proud to be the author of this book.--Eric Hobsbawm
Mr. Landes writes with verve and gusto.... This is indeed good history.--Douglass C. North
You cannot even begin to think about problems of economic development and convergence without knowing the story that Landes tells. ...I know of no better place to start thinking about the wealth and poverty of nations.--J. Bradford DeLong
Enormously erudite and provocative.... Never less than scintillating, witty, and brilliant.
Truly wonderful. No question that this will establish David Landes as preeminent in his field and in his time.--John Kenneth Galbraith
A picture of enormous sweep and brilliant insight... embodied in a light and vigorous prose which carries the reader along irresistibly.--Kenneth Arrow
A masterly survey... with verve, broad vision, and a whole series of sharp opinions that he is not shy about stating plainly.--Robert Solow
