Description - The Third World in the Age of Globalization by Ash Narain Roy

In the unipolar world of globalization, the bargaining power and sense of solidarity of Third World countries have never been weaker. But their shared problems, this book argues, remain a reality which requires political expression. But does the Third World still even exist? What role, if any, can it have in the 21st century's new topography of power? And with what agenda? The book follows these questions with a second theme: Latin America, which has long had to contront how to conduct its relations with an over-mighty neighbour, the USA. It may now be well placed to help developing countries concert together. The author explores modern Latin American history, with emphasis on the changes of the 1980s and 90s in the context of the continent's wider relations with the Third World and the USA. The result is an account of where developing countries are at the end of the 20th century, and how they might seek to reassert themselves in order to defend their interests in the new world order.
