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 I (Part I) introduces the evolution and facets of globalization, and the challenges that we face in our development eff orts under globalization. Findings from the old and new empirical studies are consolidated for us to answer the following question. What do we really know about the impacts of globalization? Volume I (Part II) contains thematic and issue-oriented discussions on the key facets of globalization.
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.

‘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. Jovanović, Global Studies Institute, University of Geneva, extracted from the Journal of Economic Integration
