Michael Wallerstein was a leader in developing a rigorous comparative political economy approach to understanding substantive issues of inequality, redistribution, and wage-determination. His early death from cancer left both a hole in the profession and a legacy that will surely provide the foundation for research on these topics. This volume collects his most important and influential contributions, organized by topic, with each topic preceded by an editorial introduction that provides overview and context.

'Michael Wallerstein was one of the leading theorists of the political economy of income distribution. This collection of his writings reminds us that simple models can be enormously powerful when wielded with flair and imagination. The editors, through their introductory essays, have also done a wonderful job of placing his work in the broader intellectual context of the many areas where he contributed.' Abhijit Banerjee, MIT
