The Great Surge: The Ascent of the Developing World  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

International Studies and Programs, James Madison College, and the College of Social Science invite you to join acclaimed scholar and author Steven Radelet for a presentation of his new book, The Great Surge: The Ascent of the Developing World.

We live at a time of the greatest progress amongst the global poor in human history. Never before have so many people in so many developing countries made so much progress in reducing poverty, improving health, increasing incomes, expanding health, reducing conflict, and encouraging democracy. The Great Surge tells the story of this unprecedented progress over the last two decades, why it happened, and what it may portend for the future.
