From the Back Cover
This path-breaking volume is one of the first dedicated exclusively to the problems of the North-South divide. The first two groups of essays focus on problems that especially afflict the global South in trade and development and that help maintain the North-South gap (such as poverty, disease, energy, financial crises, structural adjustment and human rights). The third cluster isolates particular points of conflict between North and South (such as political Islam, terrorism, weak states and nuclear weapon proliferation). A final group of articles then introduces a variety of factors that seek to ameliorate the North-South gap.
North and South in the World Political Economy will be essential reading for scholars and advanced students of international relations, international political economy and development studies.
