    Works

    • The Political Economy of Change
    • Ilchman and Uphoff believe that political science has failed in the past to meet its own standards of rigor and cogency and does not meet standards of usefulness and relevance set by others.

    Views

    Early work applied to developing a theoretical capacity to consider political and economic resources in the same calculus. Thereafter, worked increasingly on applying this perspective to the public policy issues of employment, education, land reform and population, and to evaluating the productivity of social science knowledge for public choice.
