Overview

This major textbook provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the main analytical approaches and their use in the study of third world politics and development.

The author outlines the difficulties in the various analytical approaches to the study of development within political science; presents a critical overview of each of the main schools of thought and explores the contemporary issue of democratization to illustrate how students can apply a framework for research and critically develop a perspective on their own.
