II. Book summary

Shaping the developing world explores the different theories that attempt to answer the question: why are some countries rich and others poor?

The consequences of colonialism, inadequate domestic institutions, gender inequality, and the effects of globalization, geography, and environment degradation are just some of the factors at play answering this complex question. Through a threefold framework on the West, the South, and the Natural World, Andy Baker provides a logical and intuitive structure for categorizing and assessing the factors that cause underdevelopment.

“Shaping the Developing World presents old material in new and relevant ways- ways that will encourage students to think beyond their own experiences and what they see on the news. It encourages them to critically think about the factors impacting development and allows them to use their own analytical reasoning to come to a conclusion”

=====Jessica Peet, University of Southern California=====
