Walden Bello is a member of the Philippine House of Representatives author of numerous books including *Against the Grain: The Global Food Crisis*(forthcoming), *Dilemmas of Domination: The Unmaking of the American Empire* (2005), *The Anti-Development State: The Political Economy of Permanent Crisis in the Philippines* (2004) and *Deglobalization: Ideas for a New World Economy*(2004). He obtained his Ph.D. in sociology from Princeton University in 1975 and has been a full professor at the University of the Philippines at Diliman since 1997.

An academic as well as an activist, Bello was the lead author of Development Debacle: the World Bank in the Philippines (1982) which was credited as contributing to the emergence of a critical mass of middle-class opposition to the dictator Ferdinand Marcos that eventually led to his overthrow in 1986. His book *Dragons in Distress: Asia's Miracle Economies in Crisis*(1990), co-authored with Stephanie Rosenfeld, is widely regarded as having anticipated the Asian financial crisis of 1997. Professor Bello has also been a leader of peace delegations to Iraq and Lebanon.
