Overview

Development and International Relations examines the role of the Third World in the international system.

It challenges the virtual exclusion of the Third World and the processes of development from study of international politics. The book begins with a reassessment of what is meant by development', highlighting the growing diversity within the Third World, and showing that in an increasingly globalized world development can no longer be seen as an isolated practice. The author then explores the links between the Third World and the international system in the 1990s, examining areas such as the environment, the newly industrializing countries, social justice, and the international commodity trade. Through this discussion, the author explores some of the most significant issues facing the Third World in the current global political economy.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Development and International Relations fills a need for a concise, up-to-date volume which interrogates the theory and practice of post-war development from the perspective of international relations. By subjecting development to scrutiny within the context of changes in the global system, Anna Dickson challenges not only the preoccupations of the discipline of international relations with the major powers but also advances a synthesis of post-war development efforts. There is no other major topic in international relations which has been so comprehensively ignored by mainstream international relations. Dickson is to be congratulated on her attempt to bring development from the periphery to the centre of the discipline. In linking development to the mainstream concerns of international relations this book will be a useful resource for teachers and students of development studies and world politics." Dr Marc Williams, University of Sussex
