Beschreibung: Globalization poses a formidable dilemma for the third-world state. While there are compelling external pressures to liberalize domestic economies, market-oriented reforms threaten the economic well-being of various societal groups. Popular resistance to these reforms has been strong throughout the developing world. This volume examines the political strategies employed by third world governments to maintain programs in the face of domestic opposition.§§Acknowledgements §List of Acronyms §List of Tables and Figures §About the Contributors §Globalization and the Developing World: An Introduction; F.Adams, S.D.
