Overview

This text contains the first treatment of the relationship of China to the G7/G8, a topic of enhanced importance following German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder's November 1999 call for China to become a member of the G8. This timely volume further analyses the origins and operation of the new G20 forum, which holds its first ministerial meeting in December 1999, and the role of the G8 in ending the war and shaping the reconstruction effort in Kosovo. This new volume in the G8 and Global Governance series, is forward looking, focusing on the direction of the G8 system. It places the work of the G7 within a broader context of global governance, and the new challenges facing the international community in the new century. An indispensable tool for academic, research institute, government, business and media communities interested in keeping abreast of the ongoing and rapidly expanding work of the G7/G8 system.
