Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0754670759, Hardcover)The majority of developing countries in the global South are evidently rich in natural resources, but paradoxically blighted by excruciating poverty and conflicts. This paradox of deprivation and war in the midst of plenteous resources has been the subject of great debate in International Political Economy in contemporary history. This book contributes to the debate by examining the underlying structures, actors and contexts of frontier politics and how they often produce and aggravate conflicts in the various extractive economies and regions of the global South. The book critically explores the theories of frontier economies and natural resource conflicts, as well as the practical ramifications of frontier politics in the global South with all their resonance for political economy and security in the global North.
