The Third World: Exploring U.S. Interests. Headline Series No. 259.
Sewell, John W.; Mathieson, John A.
This booklet examines the emergence of the so-called 'third world' of developing nations in the 1980s. The third world nations are widely diverse in history and culture, economic structure and political orientation. These new developing countries can affect the interests of the United States in significant ways, either individually or collectively. Chapters include: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "American Perspectives and Political Traditions"; (3) "Political and Strategic Interests"; (4) "Economic Interests"; (5) "The Political Process"; and (6) "Needed: A Development Strategy." Monographs in FPA's Headline Series are published approximately four times a year and are intended as a resource for teachers and students in the foreign policy area. Each monograph: is about a world area or topic; is written by a noted scholar; is brief (usually 64 pages); is written to be highly readable; and includes basic background, maps, charts, discussion guides, and suggested reading.
