Politics in the Developing World, Second Edition, identifies and analyzes the processes of change that are transforming the politics of the Third World. It deals with central political themes and issues such as globalization--both economic and cultural, and resistance to both--inequality, identity, religion, the military, democracy, the environment, and policy development.
