This edition in the Current Controversies series discusses the many issues related to the world's developing nations. The title explores the problems facing developing nations, such as hunger, disease, and environmental damage, the impact of the global financial crisis on developing nations, the question of whether or not democracy can be successful in developing areas, and what can be done to help struggling developing countries.
"This anthology includes essays that initially appeared in periodicals, newspapers, books, government documents, and public and private organizational publications...A balanced presentation for highly controversial views, the selections differ in style and polish; some are carefully reasoned, and others are emotionally charged. Three major sections explore the dimensions of the problem, its causes, and possible remedies. Pulling no punches, this title covers its subjects well. Useful for research, for reports, and for debates."
