Challenges of the Developing World represents a thorough update of Howard Handelman’s previously titled The Challenge of Third World Development. For many Westerners, the challenges faced by Less Developed Countries, or LDCs, seem remote until a major event bursts into the news and demands our attention, such as the rise of the Islamic State and the Syrian civil war. The purpose of this book is to enhance our understanding of the political, economic and cultural forces that lay behind these changes.
