Challenges of the Developing World, Paperback / softback Book

Challenges of the Developing World Paperback / softback


The updated ninth edition of Challenges of the Developing World examines political, social, and economic development in the diverse countries of Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America.

In doing so, it explores the political economy of policymaking, investigates the uncertain dynamics of democratization, highlights the impact of ethnic and religious tensions on developing countries, and looks at revolution and military intervention in politics.

Key issues such as the environment, sustainable development, globalization, corruption, rural and urban poverty, and gender receive particular attention.

Throughout, the book also highlights the contribution of different analytical perspectives within political science and development studies.

Clearly written and frequently illustrated with examples, Challenges of the Developing World is designed to provide the reader with knowledge of the essential concepts, relationships, and approaches in a way that will be of lasting value.
