We are pleased to invite you to a special event to launch the new book Resurgent Asia<https://www2.wider.unu.edu/crm/sites/all/modules/civicrm/extern/url.php?u=11685&qid=896353>, with the author, Professor Deepak Nayyar.

Asia's remarkable transformation and rise

Gunnar Myrdal published his magnum opus Asian Drama in 1968, to conclude that Asia's development prospects were gloomy. Since then, contrary to Myrdal's expectations, Asia has been transformed beyond recognition, the development of nations and living standards of people revolutionized. These transformations have been uneven across countries and unequal among people. Yet, Asia's economic progress in this short timespan has been remarkable and almost unprecedented in history.

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.

The presentation and discussion with Professor Deepak Nayyar will focus on what history can tell us about the remarkable economic transformation of Asia over the last 50 years, and what this can teach us for development policy going forward.

Resurgent Asia is available Open Access for download now. Access your copy here<https://www2.wider.unu.edu/crm/sites/all/modules/civicrm/extern/url.php?u=11687&qid=896353>.
