This collection of fifteen essays by eminent economist Deepak Nayyar provides an unusual blend of theory and policy, of applied research and empirical work, and of the world economy and India. The volume begins with the limited domain of trade theory and ends with the wide canvas ofglobalization. This paperback edition includes a new Preface that focuses on developments since 2008 when the book was first published. The essays are grouped into four thematic clusters: economic theory, world trade, the Indian experience, and globalization and development. The first sets of essays consider issues that have been largely neglected in mainstream economics: free trade doctrine, trade in services, and internationallabour movements. The second part on world trade examines the much debated issues of transnational corporations, East-South trade, regional trade blocs, and the multilateral trading system. The third part highlights the nature of changes in India's engagement with the world economy over six decades.The fourth part explores different aspects of globalization in the wider context of the world economy: historical experience, national development, international migration, and global governance.
Deepak Nayyar is Professor of Economics at Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi.
