This new edition of Politics in the Developing World is 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. The ten comparative case studies contained in the final section of the book add rich detail to the theories and concepts developed in the thematic chapters.

This comprehensive introduction to politics in the Global South is the best first point of reference for students. By contrast to the rigid ideas of either universal modern governance or post-modern fragmentation, it paves the way for fruitful contextual studies of major problems in comparative and theoretical perspective. (Olle Törnquist, University of Oslo)

This textbook brings together a range of leading experts to provide a well-organized, easy-to-read, and comprehensive introduction to politics in developing countries.

With key-points, questions for discussion, and suggestions for further literature and web-resources, the book will be extremely useful for students in political science and development studies. More generally, it will be of great value for anyone who has an interest in politics and developing countries. (Anne Mette Kjær, Aarhus University)

Reseña del editor:

The third edition of this well respected textbook explores the changing nature of politics in the developing world in the twenty-first century. Beginning with an examination of theoretical approaches, leading scholars then go on to discuss the social and cultural context, state governance, as well as key policy issues including the environment and human rights. Finally, a section of in depth case studies allows students to compare the political situation in a wide range of developing countries, from Indonesia and Iraq to India and China.

New chapters on the role of institutions, the transition of the state from conflict to post-conflict, and the impact of international aid ensure that Politics in the Developing World remains the most comprehensive introduction to the subject available. The third edition is fully up-to-date with recent development policies and also explores the impact of important global events, such as the 2008 financial crisis.
