Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield, 1996 - Business & Economics - 316 pages
Since the early 1980s, Structural Adjustment Programs (SAPs) have represented the development policy most often pursued in developing countries. Global Restructuring and Peripheral States addresses SAPs and their implications for Third World states. Taking a pioneering geopolitical and economic approach, Ould-Mey examines the restructuring of international relations through the process of globalization and its unfolding within peripheral states such as Mauritania.
