From recipients to donors: emerging powers and the changing development landscape

An examination of the emergence, or re-emergence, of a large number of nations as partners and donors in international development, from global powers such as Brazil, China, and India, to Gulf states such as Saudi Arabia, to former socialist states such as Poland and Russia. The book explores the range of opportunities and challenges this phenomenon presents for poorer countries and for development policy, ideology, and governance.
