In this eloquent challenge to the reigning wisdom on globalization, Dani Rodrik reminds us of the importance of the nation-state, arguing forcefully that when the social arrangements of democracies inevitably clash with the international demands of globalization, national priorities should take precedence. Combining history with insight, humor with good-natured critique, Rodrik'¬"s case for a customizable globalization supported by a light frame of international rules shows the way to a balanced prosperity as we confront today'¬"s global challenges in trade, finance, and labor markets.
Dani Rodrik is the Rafiq Hariri Professor of International Political Economy at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and is the recipient, among other honors, of the inaugural Albert O. Hirschman Prize of the Social Science Research Council.
