Review:

Haynes has written a concise and lucid introduction to the developing world. At the same time, the work is rich in analysis and in empirical examples drawn from a wide variety of developing countries and the political and economic developments occurring within them. 'Politics in the Developing World' is a welcome and an important addition to the growing literature on political and economic development. Professor Mehran Kamrava, California State University, Northridge

"Haynes explores and analyzes the most important political issues affecting the developing world. It is an essential and ideal introduction as well as an invitation to further study." M.O.Anda, University of Arkansas at Little Rock

"A clearly written, broad-ranging review of salient themes in Third World politics: gender, culture, the environment, human rights, and so on ... a welcome addition to the bookshelf of any undergraduate interested in globalization and development." Development and Change
