This important book offers valuable insights into the process of economic reform in developing countries. It is organized around three dimensions that are deemed critical to the success of reform programs. According to Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen, these key factors are Reach, Range, and Reason. `Reach' refers to the ability of reform to be person-centered and evenhanded, reaching all individuals in society. `Range' considers the institutional reforms and policy changes necessary to implement change and the possible ripple effects on other policies and populations. Finally, `Reason' captures the importance of constantly asking why a particular reform has been selected.

By analyzing the reform process from this particular perspective, the chapters in this book illustrate the success of this approach with specific examples prepared by authors from developing and transition countries and, in doing so, reveal the breadth of knowledge and home-grown expertise in the developing and transition world.

Among academics, the book will appeal to those teaching courses in political economy, development studies, globalization, and public policy. It will also be of great interest to policy-oriented researchers and policymakers at international institutions, think tanks and policy research institutes, as well as at development agencies, ministries and departments.
