A new course possibly of interest to many of you will be offered next term. It was not on the books when you registered, so we are trying to let you know about it:
History 376: International Development in Historical Perspective
History of economic development theory, policy, and practice throughout the world since 1945. Particular focus will be given to the evolution of orthodoxy in this field, from modernization theory through dependency theory to neoliberalism, considering the performance and criticism of each. Case studies include African, Asian, and Latin American countries.
Taught on TR 12:30, the course requires sophomore standing and has no other prerequisites. It is taught by Michael Mahoney, a specialist on the history of Africa who taught at Yale for a decade (including this course).
