    This book evaluates the policies of least developed countries (LDCs) and the decisions that they now face against the backdrop of the changes in the structure of the global economy and in the globalization process itself. It analyses possible scenarios and alternative trade and growth policies that are likely to affect the LDCs and their poor population, in order to draw lessons for future policies. The book has 6 chapters and a subject index.

    Diverging Views on Globalization -- Globalization and the Marginalization of the Least Developed Countries -- Has Globalization Been 'Pro-poor'? -- Have the Policies of Economic Development Been 'Pro-poor'? -- Trade and Growth Policies for Poverty Reduction : The Lessons of the 'East Asian Miracle' for the LDCs -- Will Africa Be Left Behind?
