On 14 January Professor Deepak Nayyar will attend the Delhi School of Economics to give a lecture on ‘Economic development in Asia: Learning from half a century of transformation’. The lecture draws from his recently published book, Resurgent Asia.
Resurgent Asia provides an analytical narrative of Asia's incredible economic development, situated in the wider context of historical, political, and social factors. It also provides an economic analysis of underlying factors that assisted Asia's growth and the critical issues in the process of development.
Deepak Nayyar is the author of Resurgent Asia, and editor of Asian Transformations, both newly published by Oxford University Press. Both books emanate from the recent UNU-WIDER project, Asian transformations – an inquiry into the development of nations.
The project, and the resulting open access publications, analyse the incredible story of economic development in Asia over the last 50 years, and reflects on how the next 25 years might unfold.
