Handbook of Globalisation and Development

Edited by Kenneth A. Reinert, Professor of Public Policy, Schar School of Policy and Government, George Mason University, US
Characterised by conceptual diversity, the Handbook of Globalisation and Development presents contributions from prominent international researchers on all aspects of globalisation and carefully considers their role across a whole host of development processes.

The Handbook is structured around seven key areas: international trade, international production, international finance, migration, foreign aid, a broader view, and challenges. Adopting a multi-disciplinary approach, the section on ‘a broader view’ delves into dimensions of globalisation and development that go beyond the mere economic, such as: culture, technology, health, and poverty. Carefully crafted, the chapters herein offer a rigorous and comprehensive assessment of the available research to date and provide an assessment of policy options across all areas considered.

Comprehensive and engaging, this Handbook will be an important reference for researchers in academia, government, and international organisations as well as for policy analysts needing access to the central research results in the field. Post-graduate students of international development will also find this a thorough and essential overview.
‘Globalisation offers many benefits but is also the source of major risks facing all our societies. This timely and comprehensive addition to the literature provides much-needed perspectives on the impact of globalisation and how it may more effectively be managed. A must-read for everyone with an interest in this vital topic.’
