This review essay focuses on the most crucial points in the evolution of Celso Furtado's contribution to economic and political thought in relation to development, in the hope that a wider readership will appreciate the importance of his ideas to Latin America's 'development' during the 1960s and 1970s, and perhaps even see value in reviving them. It opens with a description of the background to the rise of development economics, highlighting aspects of the discipline that this remarkable Brazilian economist confronted and transformed. This is followed by a description of his period as a development theorist or 'reform monger' (Hirschman 1963) and his subsequent exile (1964-1975). The article concludes with a discussion of some of the work produced on his return to Brazil.
