The Great Surge: The ascent of the developing world
Radelet, Steven. New York: Simon & Schuster, 2015.

Radelet explains the great transformations that have taken place within the past two decades to reduce poverty, increase incomes, improve health, curb violence, and spread democracy throughout the world. He shows how developments in technology, globalization, and local leadership have combined to improve the fate of those in developing countries. He concludes by revealing how we can fight climate change, resource demand, and political mismanagement to ensure that these improvements continue.
