Edited by Michelle Williams
To Be Published September 15th 2013 by Routledge – 160 pages
This book brings together leading scholars of development to propose new theoretical understandings of the relationship between development and the state. Focusing on the role of the state in the developing and transitional economies of South Korea, Taiwan, Ireland, China, South Africa, Brazil and India, the volume outlines the major challenges - including global economic and ecological crises - and argues that these challenges require new forms of state interventions.
