While based on Haynes's previous publication, Third World Politics: A Concise Introduction (1996), this is a new book, completely rewritten, with updated regional analyses and data throughout. It concentrates on changes in the developing world in the last decade, with an increased focus on its international relations, complementing those chapters concerned with domestic issues. An ideal introduction as well as an invitation to further study, this text is essential reading for introductory students studying a range of courses including development studies, global politics, world politics,.

However, this is a complex issue and globalisation has different experiences within different communities. The usefulness of Civil Society in terms of understanding change in attitudes concerning contemporary issues in respect to why the states vary in forms of government is plenty, one must dig deeper and find comparative difference in attitudes. For example, in European states civil society favours state intervention concerning income inequality is more welcomed than in the United States13 however, most critics would reject this as ‘predictable’.

Religion - as reflected in the Iranian Revolution of 1978-1980, the rapid growth of evangelical Protestantism in Latin America, and the triumph of the mujahidin in Afghanistan in 1992 - has assumed great political significance in a number of Third World contexts.
