The book was edited by former Pardee Center Director Prof. Adil Najam (now Vice Chancellor of Lahore University of Management Sciences in Pakistan) and Pardee Center Research Fellow Rachel Denae Thrasher. The volume features chapters by several international experts on the topic who presented preliminary versions of their book chapters at the conference.
The book draws on the authors’ expertise in discussing the history of economic collaboration among various developing countries and what shape future collaborations may take in terms of not only trade, but also investment and finance, labor and workforce movement, and cooperation in global economic governance.
This is the second edited volume of essays by experts stemming from a Pardee Center conference. China Today, China Tomorrow (2010, Rowman and Littlefield Publishers) was the outcome of a 2008 Pardee Center conference titled “Where is China Headed?” organized by Pardee Center Faculty Fellow Joseph Fewsmith, who also served as editor of the book.
