Description:

Today's global economy cannot ignore what is known as a Third World country any longer as global citizens are asking for everyone to have the same liberties and resources as everyone else. Arm your readers with well-balanced opinions that they will form after weighing opposing viewpoints on issues about the Third World. Across four chapters, readers will evaluate the problems that the Third World faces, the impact of globalization, the state of democracy in the Third World, and whether the United States should assist Third World countries. Essay sources include the United Nations Population Fund, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, and the World Bank.
