It addresses a wide range of issues, including interlinkages between conflict and inequality, poverty mapping, and the causes and consequences of inequality. It applies the latest research techniques, such as regression-based decomposition, poverty decomposition, and computable general equilibrium models.

Containing theoretical and empirical contributions by some of the most prominent economists in the area of inequality and development studies, this book will be of interests to economists, sociologists, and policymakers in Asia and elsewhere.

Pressestimmen"The papers in this volume represent economists' great efforts to achieve a better understanding and measurement of rising regional disparities facing Asian economies. Its theoretical and methodological contents make this book of much value to both students of economics and to policymakers in developing Asia." --Zhang Jun, China Centre for Economic Studies, Fudan University, Shanghai, China "Kanbur, Venables and Wan make an important contribution by bringing together a collection of articles that discuss not only methodological issues in measuring regional disparities but also empirical evidence from small and large countries of Asia. Of interest are the varied explanations of what causes these inequalities that will no doubt be useful for policymakers and practitioners dealing with development issues." --Brinda Viswanathan, Institute for Social and Economic Change, Bangalore, India
