Politics in the Developing World
Peter Burnell, Vicky Randall & Lise Rakner
The third edition of this well-respected textbook explores the changing nature of politics in the developing world in the twenty-first century. Alongside detailed coverage of the relevant theories, policies, and issues, students will benefit from a concluding section of in-depth case studies, comparing the political situation in a range of countries - from Indonesia to Iraq - and examining the impact of China and India as emerging powers.
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 the third edition is up-to-date with the latest developments in the field and remains the most comprehensive introduction to politics in the developing world available.
