About this book


Asia is widely regarded as having benefited most from the dynamic growth effect of the recent wave of globalization. By examining mechanisms at work in the globalization–poverty nexus through specific case studies reflecting different settings, the book seeks to find ways to rediscover and resume a pattern of shared growth in Asia.
