Third World Politics: An Introduction
Both ambitious and original, Clapham's book covers governance, economic management, external relations, military leadership, and revolutionary orientations for all the nations involved. He shows how fragile Western institutions of political and economic management and accountability are in the Third World, and--on the other hand--how dependent on the advanced industrial nations Third World leaders remain. For all who seek a better understanding of the emerging nations of the Third World, Clapham's book will provide illuminating introductory and background information. The Wisconsin edition is not for sale in the British Commonwealth (excluding Canada) or Japan.
