An introductory glance at the situation of peoples who find themselves within the fourth world. It is organized by geographical regions, with each section beginning with an essay that presents an overview of the region in question. At times the essays were easier to engage with than the summaries that followed. Although that is because I was not reading this book as it was intended. I can however certainly see myself returning to it in the future. As a starting point, it will not doubt be very useful for gaining one's bearings. Some of the contributors are also people whose writing I am quite fond of.
