Anne Mette Kjaer, Aarhus University The best first point of reference for students... it paves the way for fruitful contextual studies of major problems in comparative and theoretical perspective. Olle Trnuist, University of Oslo ... an eloquently written text by some of the leading international scholars currently working in the area. The book provides a theoretically-informed approach to understanding many of the major historical and contemporary issues impacting politics in the developing world.
