This book is a comprehensive examination of the prospects for democratization in the developing world. The contributors all share the assumption that democratization cannot occur in the absence of widespread socioeconomic well-being, in terms of human rights, the distribution of resources and population, and the environment. They offer to a detailed analysis of Third World politics by seeking to clarify certain myths and to assess the prospects for Third World development.
