This attractive collection includes some ingenious examinations of rather arcane subjects, a few papers that do little more than document well-known generalizations and a few stimulating inquiries into the historical background of current issues, such as Charles P. Kindleberger on the changed place of the United States in the world economy, Albert Fishlow on Latin American debt and Detlef Lorenz on the essential characteristics of the newly industrialized countries. It is a festschrift for Wolfram Fischer.
