The fourth edition of this well-respected textbook explores the changing nature of politics in the developing world as the twenty-first century moves into its second decade. Thematic chapters examine theoretical approaches and the historical and economic context; society-state relations; structures and processes of governance, and conflict; and the evolution of policy, including human rights and the environment. The book concludes with a revised case study section that draws out central themes and comparisons between a wide range of developing countries from Indonesia and Iraq to Brazil and Guatemala. This new edition has been thoroughly updated to take account of developments including the aftermath of the financial crisis and the 'Arab spring' and includes new chapters on social movements and governance, as well as a new country case study on Brazil.
Student learning and development is supported by a range of features including boxes, key points, glossary terms and end of chapter questions, while further reading guides and web links encourage study beyond the textbook. The text is also supported by an Online Resource Centre with the following features:
