Purposefully written for those coming to politics for the firsttime, this textbook provides an exploration and analysis of themost important political issues affecting the developing world.Offering a different perspective from standard texts in this field,Politics in the Developing World encourages an understanding of thebreadth and nature of a range of pressing – and previouslyunderstated – issues: the striving for democracy; thepolitical consequences of economic growth and development; thestruggle of religious and ethnic minorities; human rights,particularly women's rights ; the impact of globalization; and thepolitics of the natural environment. In doing so, the interactionof domestic and global factors affecting many of the developingworld countries is highlighted and a new, qualitatively differentset of concerns is identified. Some have resulted from recentinternational changes following the demise of the Soviet bloc,including the shift to democracy in South Africa, and theramifications of the late 1990s Southeast Asian financial crisis.

To illustrate the importance of these themes and issues, fivedeveloping world regions are examined in detail: Latin America andthe Caribbean, South Asia, East and Southeast Asia, the Middle Eastand North Africa, and sub-Saharan Africa. While based on Haynes'sprevious publication, Third World Politics: A Concise Introduction(1996), this is a new book, completely rewritten, with updatedregional analyses and data throughout. It concentrates on changesin the developing world in the last decade, with an increased focuson its international relations, complementing those chaptersconcerned with domestic issues.

An ideal introduction as well as an invitation to further study,this text is essential reading for introductory students studying arange of courses including development studies, global politics,world politics, developing world politics, comparative politics,and international relations.

From the Back Cover:

Purposefully written for those coming to politics for the firsttime this new textbook provides an exploration and analysis of themost important contemporary politics issues of the ThirdWorld.

It offers a different, deeper perspective to the standard textsin this field, encouraging an understanding of the concerns –and drawbacks – of the traditional approaches. This ensuresthat the reader can fully appreciate the breadth and nature of arange of pressing – and previously understated –issues: the striving for democracy; the political consequences ofeconomic growth and development; the struggle of religious andethnic minorities; women’s and human rights; and the politicsof the natural environment. In doing so, the interaction ofdomestic and global factors affecting many aspects of Third Worldpolitics is highlighted and a new, qualitatively different set ofconcerns is identified resulting from recent international changessuch as the end of the Cold War and the demise of the Sovietbloc.

To illustrate the importance of these throughout the Third Worldthematic chapters focus on five Third World regions: Latin Americaand the Caribbean, South Asia, East and South East Asia; the MiddleEast and North Africa, and sub-saharan Africa.

A comprehensive introductory chapter not only explains thestructure of the book, defines terms and introduces the range ofconcepts and issues discussed but also compares, contrasts,explains and criticizes the range of traditional paradigms, settingout a theoretical framework for the book. Finally, a discussion ofthe decolonization process since 1945 and an examination of thecharacteristics of state-society relationships enables the readerto locate the contemporary period in historical perspective.

Both an ideal introduction and invitation to further study, thisvolume is essential reading for beginning students studying a rangeof courses, including global politics, world politics, Third Worldpolitics, comparative politics, development studies andinternational relations. It will also be especially useful to thosein the second year of their degrees, following a range of modularcourses, such as Third World Politics.
