Review:

This book covers all relevant themes, approaches, and policy issues, and will be extremely useful for students in political science and development studies. Anne Mette Kjaer, Aarhus University The best first point of reference for students... it paves the way for fruitful contextual studies of major problems in comparative and theoretical perspective. Olle Trnuist, University of Oslo ... an eloquently written text by some of the leading international scholars currently working in the area. The book provides a theoretically-informed approach to understanding many of the major historical and contemporary issues impacting politics in the developing world. Bruce Wilson, University of Central Florida This classic textbook provides the discerning student with the best possible introduction to the politics experienced by the majority of the people of the world. Anthony Payne, University of Sheffield
