Why do some countries remain poor and dysfunctional while others thrive and become affluent? The expert contributors to this volume seek to identify reasons why prosperity has increased rapidly in some countries but not others by constructing and comparing cases. The studies focus on the processes of nation building, state building, and economic development in comparably situated countries over the past hundred years--and arrive at findings that do not validate the conventional wisdom.
