Renu Modi’s edited book is a significant contribution that chronicles the emerging counter-hegemonic South–South development paradigm with a particular focus on Africa. Viewed against the background of most literature that documents the hierarchical international economic and political relations of North–South development since decolonisation, the book is a unique effort to map out the various contours of a revitalised South–South relation that is not wedded to the dominant international development cooperation discourse.
