Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 156549167X, Paperback)

* A balanced introduction to civil society that calls for ethical globalization to benefit the world’s poor
* Presents insider perspectives from both the World Bank and NGOs
* Challenges civil society organizations to redress today’s injustices and transform global relations
* Author of six books including the best-selling Democratizing Development

Globalization is one of the most charged political battlegrounds of our age. Its advocates say it is an engine for universal prosperity, while its critics see it as a race to the bottom for poor people and poor countries. Worlds Apart casts polemics aside and fairly and respectfully interprets both sets of arguments. While not a search for a middle ground, it unashamedly emphasizes the injustices of widening inequalities and stacked odds in world trade and finance.

Clark argues that civil society faces a distinct opportunity to drive global change in an ethical direction. He argues that the search for a more humane management of global affairs should ultimately focus on promoting growth, inclusion, and narrowing the socioeconomic gap across states and peoples.
