"As emerging markets become an integral part of the world economic landscape, no serious macroeconomist can afford the luxury of ignoring the valuable lessons and insights that can be drawn from many years of research in development macroeconomics. A veritable tour de force, Agenor and Montiel's book fills a large void by providing a timely, comprehensive, and lucid synthesis of this burgeoning field. A must-read for anyone interested in going beyond the cliches of the day and grasping the fundamental issues in development macroeconomics." -- Carlos Vegh, University of California, Los Angeles

"For students and teachers of money and finance in economic development, the revised edition is even more comprehensive and inclusive. While maintaining high standards of analytical rigor, the authors model a surprising wide range of tough macroeconomic problems--including the more recent Mexican and East Asian currency crises ... an invaluable treatise." -- Ronald McKinnon, Stanford University

"The first edition of Agenor and Montiel's book was an unprecedented resource for teaching and research on the macroeconomic problems of developing countries. This new edition, with its enhanced coverage of recent questions surrounding capital inflows, crises, and exchange rate strategies, is even more essential. Every serious student of the international economy will want to have this comprehensive treatise on his or her shelf." -- Maurice Obstfeld, University of California, Berkeley
