“Extremely readable and worthwhile. . . . Clapham’s work provides a balanced and insightful perspective of an area which is as complex and diverse as the many countries which comprise its whole.”âJournal of International Law & Politics“To write a summary of Third World Politics is a nearly impossible task. . . . Professor Clapham has been able to present a challenging analysis that is worthy of attention. . . . This book is recommended to any Latin Americanist who wishes to put Latin America in the context of the Third World. It is written in clear English without complex statistical data.”âLatin America in Books“It is precisely Christopher Clapham’s sense of the essence of politics that commends his useful little book. Although not specifically devoted to Africa, his first love does show through in many of the examples chosen. The essential practicality of his approach is well demonstrated in the fact that a third of the book is given over to three chapters entitled: âManaging the Statel,’ âManaging the Economy,’ and âManaging the External PoliticalArena.’ ”âRichard Rathbone, The International Journal of African Historical Studies
