This book aims to help students grasp some of the main dimensions of contemporary global issues in the Third World--which we term the "Other World." It is intended to present an understanding of that part of our world that is neither Western nor Soviet-bloc in its orientation. In order to appreciate the Other World in today's international community, we need to know of its geography, cultures, traditions, and political and historical development.

Review:

Praise for the Tenth Edition The Other World is a valuable teaching tool during this era of rapid and far-reaching change both in America's role in the world and in the debate over globalization. The new edition of this book clearly and vividly depicts the governmental systems, and the debate over globalization that is taking place within them, as countries the world over attempt to modernize their economies and as societies confront increasingly challenging environmental, technological, economic, and strategic transformations. Buckle up, readers, we are in for a bumpy ride! Larry F. Martinez, California State University-Long Beach This new edition of The Other World provides an invaluable and timely "big picture" account of how the forces of globalization have shaped development. Written in highly accessible prose, this book will shift its readers' perspective on concepts like developed and underdeveloped, globalized and national, North and South. Students of globalization and development, take note! Axel Dreher, Heidelberg University, Germany The tenth edition of The Other World: Issues and Politics in the Developing World is the perfect introductory text to the world's developing regions and their political challenges. The early chapters expertly lay out the necessary broad theoretical underpinnings, and the case-study chapters allow for more detailed exploration of each of the developing regions. What I particularly like about this new edition is that it is up to date on the political problems that we currently see in the news, which facilitates classroom discussion, engagement, and instruction. Diego Esparza, Naval Postgraduate School
