This is the first biography of a world-famous pioneering development economist, Sir Hans W. Singer, who is better known throughout the developing world than any other economist, living or dead. It gives a detailed account of the way in which the 'twists of fate' led him to becoming a leading development economist. It contains a thematic synthesis of all his major theoretical and conceptual work and of the many initiatives in which he has been involved to solve the problems of developing countries.

'No economist of the twentieth-century has been so persistent in focusing on the problems of developing countries - and so creative in exploring what can be done to accelerate their development. It is a remarkable story, the life and ideas of an intellectual giant John Shaw has performed a great service by documenting the record of Hans Singer's achievements, with attention to his writings and intellectual contributions over the whole of his life - from his early training at the feet of Schumpter and Keynes, his pioneering work in the early years of the United Nations, to the final phase of his career at the Institute of Development at the University of Sussex. Over time, Singer's imagination and writings have been honed to a new sharpness by outrage at increasing inequality in the era of globalization'. - Sir Richard Jolly, Senior Research Fellow, City University of New York's Graduate Centre and co-director of the United Nations Intellectual History Project 'This is more than the life-story of Britain's most highly respected and most-loved development economist: John Shaw's comprehensive narrative amounts to a history of development thinking over seven decades'. - Simon Maxwell, Director of the Overseas Development Institute, London
