DescriptionContentsAuthors

Exploring areas in which Ajit Singh has inspired wide-ranging debate and has written seminal works, this volume provides a comprehensive overview of economic development and globalisation, exploring the rise of China and India and the effects of these recent economic successes on countries worldwide, with a detailed look at the Sub-Saharan African experience, as well as comparisons of the two Asian economies in terms of institutions and performance. This volume also offers fresh and valuable insights into issues such as the future of Europe and industrial revolutions in the developing world.
Containing expert contributions from a variety of scholars working in these areas of research, this book explores contemporary concerns in economic development and globalisation as well as examining how the issues have changed since Ajit Singh first began working on these subjects. This is an essential companion for all interested in the reach of globalisation, the effect of the rapid rise of China and India on the rest of the world, and on issues of economic development worldwide, as well as those who have been, and continued to be, inspired by Ajit Singh's work.
