To fully understand the progress of a developing country, one must closely analyze its economic, social, cultural, and political history, and how these factors intertwine. What are some similar trends in the developmental histories of these countries? How do these countries interact with the larger international community? Though these are complex questions and factors to consider, they may seem less daunting if brought together in a comprehensive introductory study. This book serves as just such a resource, balancing the theoretical background of contemporary development with practical examples. This book balances the theoretical with the practical, by providing readers with ample case references to specific projects and issues. It includes histories of developing regions including Asia, Latin America, and Africa, and depicts how regional circumstances have accelerated or impeded development. The book summarizes successful development projects, including Grameen Bank, the Habitat for Humanity, First Nations Development Institute, as well as some development failures. International social workers, foreign policy analysts, politicians, political economists, sociologists, and anthropologists.
