Gallagher’s Book Reviewed in Providence
Kevin Gallagher, Professor of Global Development Policy at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, recently had his new book, The China Triangle, reviewed in the journal Providence.
You can read the full review, entitled “Losing to the Dragon,” here. The China Triangle was released in 2016.
The China Triangle provides one of the first accounts of post-“China boom” Latin America, and focuses on Latin America’s development challenges in a historical context. In the book, Gallagher examines the parallel between the boom of Latin American economies from 2003 to 2013 and the transformation of China from a poverty-stricken nation to the largest economy in the world.
Gallagher also examines how the Latin American boom began to fade in 2014, while China’s economy slowed and shifted toward a consumer-based economy less dependent on imported natural resources.
