About the Authors
  • This collection focuses on the ways in which federalism has affected and been affected by economic reform, especially global integration. The editors and contributors focus in particular on the political economy of institutional and economic change--how the division of authority between national and subnational governments shapes debates over policy changes, as well as how the changing economic environment creates incentives to modify the basic agreements between levels of governments. Each chapter contains a historical overview, and an in-depth account of division of authority, lines of accountability, and legislative, bureaucratic, and other arenas in which the levels of government interact for a particular country.

    •  Editors extract extensive lessons from policy in a long, accessible conclusion
    •  Covers major countries in Asia, Latin America and Africa
    •  Balances theory and empirical realities in a non-technical fashion
