From decolonization and democratization to religion and gender, Politics and Culture in the Developing World is a comprehensive survey of the global context of development. With in-depth and current examples from Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East., this text examines the central political themes in the developing world. Throughout, Politics and Culture in the Developing World demonstrates how globalization both accelerates change and increases interdependence between developing and developed countries.

Editorial Reviews

“Payne and Nassar do a remarkable job of interconnecting the myriad of issues facing developing countries and following the thread of globalization that runs through them. This approach goes a long way in providing students with a bigger picture of both the third world and the globalized world. ”–Manjusha Gupta, North Dakota State University
