Since their emergence and subsequent integration into the highly suffocating global economic system, the group of countries tagged the "Third World" have been miserably engulfed in hunger and poverty, debts and deaths.

Their hallmarks are negative indices in quality of political management, Gross National Income, freedom of information, human development, healthcare delivery system, security, and general welfare. The effect of unstable government, alongside the plight of high level illiteracy, tribal conflicts, military dictatorship, and brutal civil wars, have chronically beset the prospect of meaningful development within these nations.

Allied to these are poor quality of life, diseases, uncontrollable population growth, high infant and adult mortality rates, including low economic development, and extreme dependency on the developed, industrialized countries. Notwithstanding the various endeavours in different aspects of development projects at different periods, the "Third World" countries have continually retained the derisive tag ever since they were first labelled as such in 1955 at the Conference of Afro-Asia countries in Bandung, Indonesia.

Drawing on extensive number of academic works and new research, Third World Development Strategies, examines some of the salient factors responsible for gross underdevelopment in Third World countries, and makes a compelling case for new approach to Third World Development Strategies.
