Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“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
