Understanding Third World politics - theories of political change and development
Brian C Smith
Paperback / softback
Red Globe Press
UK Publication Date

Understanding Third World Politics gives a comprehensive and critical introduction to the main theories that have been used to understand political change in developing countries.

It examines the variety of political institutions and processes in the Third World and critical evaluates the major explanatory frameworks used by political scientists to understand them. The discussion is supported throughout by a wide range of topical case studies from around the world - including features on class in Brazil and democracy in India. The book concludes by considering the political instability that so frequently plagues poor countries and by identifying the conditions required to establish democratic stability.

The fourth edition has been revised and updated throughout to take account of key political developments, including foreign interventions in the Middle East, state repression in North Africa, and the secession of South Sudan. Engagingly written, this text offers a clear and theoretically rigorous introduction to the politics of the Third World.
