- We can order this
Globalization and Development is a "cross-national study" on the "interstate dispersion" of the impacts (on growth, inequality and poverty) that international economic integration provides to the economies of the developing countries. In order to present the "Leading Issues in Development with Globalization" in a balanced manner, to identify differences and commonalities among "Country Experiences" in development with globalization, and to introduce diversified development paradigms with forward-looking discussions "In Search of a New Development Paradigm" for the post-MDGs era, this publication consists of three volumes and four main parts.
Volume II (Part III) presents the country case studies of Bhutan, China, Indonesia, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, and Ghana, with their respective experiences of development under globalization. An additional chapter that describes the overall African experience under globalization is included, reflecting the recent emergence of Africa as the global target of investment.
This book intends to serve as a unique and comprehensive guide for those in the international development community on the subjects of diversified development paradigms/paths under globalization and other challenges in the post-MDGs era.

'Globalization and Development - In Search of a New Development Paradigm is an excellent and comprehensive work on International Development. It is a welcome and significant contribution to understanding globalization, its determinants and impacts on development including growth, poverty and inequality. Written by well-known academics and scholars from various parts of the world, it provides a comparative and multidimensional analysis which is relevant in today's dynamic and more interconnected global economy.' -Teofilo C. Daquila, Associate Professor of Southeast Asian Economics, National University of Singapore
`This set is a useful reference reading to policymakers, research fellows and academics on globalisation and economic development in South-East Asia and Africa. The subject is so vast that it would not be just to remark only what it does not cover (there are important missing matters such as the emerging Trans Pacific Partnership; or profound considerations of Singapore and South Korea), but rather what it does: the set is a useful collection of articles on select national experiences regarding development in a changing globalised world. As such, students may find in this set a useful reading material for their courses. In addition, the set is a highly recommended item for the libraries and shelves for those that deal with development, income distribution and globalisation.' - Miroslav N. Jovanovic, Global Studies Institute, University of Geneva, extracted from the Journal of Economic Integration
