This small book covers a wide range of subjects. Among its highlights are: recapitulations of the development of Professor Hirschman's seminal ideas on development, an ingenious and learned disquisition on the title of the book, and some pointed comments on the impoverishment of economics resulting from reliance on narrow assumptions. Some of the papers appear fully or in English for the first time; all are marked by the author's originality in thought and felicity in language.
