First edition, first impression; a major contribution to development economics and a key work by the British economist Sir William Arthur Lewis (1915-1991): “His summation of his experience appeared the next year as The Theory of Economic Growth. Here Lewis showed his knowledge that development was not a mere exercise in applied economic theory but had to take into account political, social, and cultural influences. In an appendix he even broached the topic of the links between growth and welfare” *(ODNB).
