Summary
"Well-known as a pioneer of economic development, Albert Hirschman has been the flag- bearer of possibilism and reform-mongering in political science. How Reforms Should be Passed is an anthology of texts chosen personally by Hirschman on the latter production line - as he was to call it informally - that is rooted in his long and quasi-exclusive concern for development and Latin America. Key essays on the formation and the evolution of Hirschman's point of view on the subject are collected: from "Ideologies of Economic Development in Latin America" to Journeys (and later "A Return Journey") on policy-making; from "Obstacles to the Perception of Change" to"The Search for Paradigms as a Hindrance to Understanding". They show an extraordinary turn of the mind in the making that will be very useful for the U.S. and the developed world as well - as the final texts of the book on democracy and Europe (Italy, Germany and France) bear out. This book represents a unique opportunity for becoming familiar with many original and perceptive lenses provided by Hirschman to look at the world we live in, and especially to favor social change - focusing (first of all) on the cultural and political side of the matter"--
