The Other World combines a thematic and area studies approach to explore contemporary global issues in the developing world. Accessible and interdisciplinary, this text offers political, economic, social, and historical analysis plus case studies on Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, North Africa and the Middle East, Central Asia and the Southern Near Abroad, and Asia. Highlighting similarities and differences among these regions and focusing on enduring problems, The Other World is a practical look at the issues affecting the majority of the world’s population.
“This text provides students a much more sophisticated understanding of modernity, tradition, and development. It enables them to understand that the issues ‘out there’ are intricately linked with the issues ‘here’ and thus facilitates more informed global thinking and action.”–Kelechi Kalu, The Ohio State University
