Harvester Wheatsheaf, 1993 - Developing countries - 184 pages

Not the least of these myths are those about economic history: such as the roots of depressions, the causes of growth and the reasons behind nations' different stages of economic development. Paul Bairoch sets out in this book to demolish 18 such myths and to reveal generally unnoticed but economically important turning points in modern economic history.
