In many parts of the world, neoliberalism has not replaced but interacted with national developmentalism in complex and diverse ways. With new constituencies of developmentalism emerging across the globe and with classic developmental political economies restructuring beyond national boundaries, the sociopolitical conditions, processes, and consequences of national development have turned out much more diverse and complex than previously acknowledged. Concurrently, the structural incongruity across various goals of national progress – such as democracy, social equity and integration, and economic development – has become a prevalent phenomenon across the globe. Using case studies that coverboth post-ISI, post-socialist, post-developmental statist, and post-liberal instances of neoliberal-era developmental politics during the ascendancy of neoliberalism on the one hand and East and South Asian, Latin American, African, European, and Australian experiences on the other, the contributors critically examine various national configurations of developmental politics in the neoliberal era.

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.
