Summary

Although the phrase "North-South divide" is not heard so much these days, the core issues which divide rich countries from poor countries in global politics are still very much with us. This path-breaking book offers a new way of thinking about these questions, grounded in the insights of global political economy and an interpretation of contemporary global politics as a contest between competing country development strategies.
