Course Description 
This course aims at introducing students the political development of the Third World, including impact of colonial history, ethnic and cultural conflicts, authoritarian rule by the military, revolutions and civil wars, economic development, democratization and electoral politics, and influence of globalization. In addition to the basic understanding of general knowledge on the Third World (Asia, Africa and Latin America), the main purpose of this course is to enable students to have a deeper appreciation of the problems and challenges faced by these countries.

Teaching Method 
This class is comprised of both lecture and discussion. Students are expected to participate in class discussion. This is considered to be an integral part of the learning process and will be weighed in the final grade. A student should try to finish the reading assignment before each class, take notes during the class, and review the materials after the class on his/her own. The medium of communication in this course is English. Textbooks, lecture, examinations, report and class discussion will all be conducted in English. If you do not feel comfortable with this format, you should re-consider whether this course truly meet your needs.
