Publisher Comments:

A superb overview of third world development . . Challenges people in developed nations to accept their share of responsibility for Third World stagnation. . .Highly recommended for general as well as academic readers.

--CHOICE Magazine

Offers provocative answers to the question of increasing world poverty. For those interested in examining and analyzing international development issues, this book would serve as a background.

--Consumer Currents

Continues to be one of the best short books on the subject of social change in the Third World.

--Counterpoise, January-April, 2002

* Updates include discussion of major initiatives such as the Millennial Development Goals, (MDG) to eliminate global poverty

* Examines changes in international politics and approaches to global terrorism following the US-led military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq

* Extensively revised facts and figures

The seventh edition of this perennial stalwart of the Kumarian Press list continues the discussion of the new American hegemony and the war on terror that began with the previous edition. In particular, Isbister addresses changes in international politics and the impact on the global order of the US-led military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. The author also focuses on major initiatives, such as the UN's Millennium Development Goals, to confront the issue of world poverty. As with all editions of this vibrant text, Isbister writes with clarity and passion, not only about failed promises, but about hope, human potential, and the belief that a just and equitable world system is attainable.

Book News Annotation:

Isbister (humanities and social sciences, Laurentian U., Canada) updates his textbook for an undergraduate course focusing on confronting the world's disadvantaged majority in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America. The book is designed to appeal to students not only of third world studies, but those in any major who are interested in an overview of international development. Like the previous editions, 1991-2003, this incorporates current events and recent readings. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
