Summary

Politics and Culture in the Developing World comprehensively examines the globalized context and process of development in African, Asian, Latin American, and Middle Eastern countries. From history, economics, religion, and gender to democratic transitions, political leadership, and ethnic conflict, this text surveys all of the major themes of development in the developing world. The authors, drawing on their professional and personal experience, show how globalization is accelerating change in developing countries and linking them more closely to industrialized countries.
