About this book

In the new unipolar world of globalisation, the bargaining power and sense of solidarity of Third World countries have never been weaker. But their shared problems, this author argues, remain a reality that 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? These are the critical questions explored.
