History, Objectives, Activities, and
Membership Benefits


In order to provide an international structure for the humane and scientific study of Third World peoples, problems and issues, with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of life, Dr. Harold Isaacs, Professor of History at Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus, Georgia, founded the Association of Third World Studies (ATWS), Inc., in 1983.

ATWS is now the largest professional organization of its kind in the world, with a global membership and chapters in South Asia and Africa. Members include academics, practitioners in the area of Third World development, employees of government agencies, and diplomats who reside in 45 states plus the District of Columbia in the U.S., and in 21 other countries around the globe (especially Kenya, Nigeria, and India).

Since 1983 the Association has held 27 annual international conferences, published 52 issues of its main publication, Journal of Third World Studies (JTWS), as well as ATWS Conference Proceedings, and ATWS Newsletter. ATWS became an institution in 1991 when elected officials (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Executive Council members, and Chairpersons of standing committees) assumed responsibility for the management of the organization. In 1992 Georgia Southern University became Executive Headquarters, administered by an Executive Director selected by the Executive Council. The Executive Headquarters are now at Louisiana State University Shreveport. Dr. William D. Pederson, Ph.D., Professor of Political Science, and Director of the International Lincoln Center for American Studies, is the new Executive Director of ATWS. In 1995 the United Nations granted U.N. “consultative status,” thus enabling the Association to increase its direct impact on Third World issues and developments. A web site was established in 1996 which provides information about the history, structure and activities of ATWS as well as a membership directory.

ATWS has an international impact through the worldwide circulation of JTWS, U.N. “consultative status,” the ATWS web site, chapters in South Asia and Africa (Kenya & Nigeria), and contributions of scholarly articles and book reviews to JTWS by Third World scholarThe South Asia chapter, founded by Dr. Isaiah Azariah, who passed away in January, 2005, has held twelve successful conferences, the latest May 4-6, 2007 in Trivandrum, India, and members of chapters in Kenya and Nigeria have attended ATWS annual conferences and are prolific contributors to JTWS. The Kenya chapter held its sixth and extremely successful conference in November 2005 at Western University College of Science and Technology in Kakemega, Kenya, drawing participants from Nigeria, Tanzania, and Uganda.


Dr. Harold Isaacs served as Executive Director from 1983 to 1989, and organized the first eight annual meetings.

Journal of Third World Studies (JTWS)

The Journal of Third World Studies (ISSN 8755-3449) is published by ATWS bi-annually, Spring and Fall, and is under the general editorship of Dr. Harold Isaacs and several associate editors who specialize in specific regions: Yi Sun (Asia), Samuel Zalanga (Africa), and J. Patrice McSherry (Latin America). Kathryn L. Zak is editorial assistant. The JTWS, which began in 1984 and has since published 52 issues of provocative peer reviewed articles, review essays, and book reviews, averages over 300 pages per issue and is abstracted and indexed by 16 specialized services. The internationally-distributed periodical receives financial support from the Association’s membership dues and subscription fees as well as from Georgia Southwestern State University and its foundation.

The JTWS welcomes submissions expressing diverse viewpoints concerning Third World problems and issues. Members receive a subscription to JTWS as a membership benefit and are encouraged to submit articles which will be considered for publication. Members are also encouraged to volunteer as book reviewers. An annual subscription for non-members and institution is $60.00. Further information about the JTWS can be found in its section of this Web site.


The ATWS Conference Proceedings was started in 1993 by Dr. Marcia Jones of the Department of Finance and Economics, Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia after the Association’s meeting at Pacific Lutheran College in Tacoma, Washington. The fourth edition (Montgomery, Alabama meeting) was edited by former co-editor, Dr. Nancy Shumaker, Department of Modern Languages and director of the Center for International Studies, Georgia Southern University. Dr. Harold Isaacs Professor Emeritus of History, Georgia Southwestern State University, edited Proceedings, 2001-2005.


The ATWS Newsletter first appeared in the Fall of 1994 as a supplement to the International Perspectives newsletter of Georgia Southern University’s Center for International Studies and was under the editorship of Dr. Paul A. Rodell. After two issues the newsletter became a separate publication in the summer of 1995 with Dr. Marcia Jones becoming, first, co-editor and in October 1996 the sole editor. ATWS members receive issues of the newsletter as a membership benefit. Bhim Sandhu served as editor of the newsletter between 2001 and 2009. The current editor of the newsletter is Chaitram Singh, Gund professor of political science and international studies, Berry College. Mount Berry, Georgia.

U.N. Consultative Status:

In August 1995, ATWS won ” Consultative Status” as a non-governmental organization (NGO) to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC). This status, which allows ATWS to increase its direct impact on current Third World issues and developments, came after more than a year of petitioning by then ATWS Executive Director Zia Hashmi and former ATWS President Paul Magnarella who deserve praise for their persistence.

NGOs which have been granted Consultative Status may attend public meetings of ECOSOC and its subsidiary bodies and commissions, and submit written statements, or proposals, as well as make oral statements relevant to the work of ECOSOC. Consultative Status with the UN also gives NGOs access to an enormous amount of written material generated by the UN system.

In 1996 Mr. Charles Liebling was designated as ATWS’ New York representative to the UN, with Paul Magnarella serving as additional representative. Mr. Liebling’s successor was Dr. Julius Ihonvbere, world renowned Africanist. The current representative is Dr. Lauren Eastwood, SUNY, Plattsburgh. E-mail: eastwole@plattsburgh or

Furher information about ATWS’s UN status can be found on that section of this Web site.

1.  All manuscript submissions should be submitted, as Microsoft Word files, to our online submissions system at < URL to be announced>.   Until the online system is operational, please submit manuscripts to the editor at

2. Submissions to the JGSS should be approximately 10,000 words, including source citations. In special instances the editor in chief may allow longer papers to be published. All submissions should also include an abstract of no more than 250 words.

3. All submissions should follow The Chicago Manual of Style (16th Edition). The Journal of Global South Studies does not cite references or sources in the body of the paper with name of author, date of publication, and page number in brackets. The journal uses consecutive regular number citations (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.), NOT ROMAN NUMERALS, in the body of the paper with corresponding numbers and sources listed separately under NOTES at the end of the paper.  These number citations should appear after any punctuation marks, not inside.  For example, “He claimed that the data was flawed.”1

4. The name of the author, institutional affiliation and contact information should not appear on the paper. This information should be provided on a separate page. This is to ensure the anonymity of the author to the reviewers of the paper. The journal’s review process is double-blind (i.e., neither the author(s) nor the reviewers know each other).

5. The title of the paper should be at the top of the first page and centered. Any abstract written for the paper will only be used for the review process, and will not appear in the journal publication. For this reason, authors should write the introduction and conclusion to their paper assuming that there will be no abstract in the paper if it is finally published in the journal.

6. All spelling must be in American English. Authors must edit British spelling previous to submission unless such spelling is part of a direct quote.

7. Please use Times New Roman (12pt font) and double-space the text.

8. Depending on the nature of one’s paper, generally most papers would need the following sections: introduction, literature review, methods of data collection (if relevant), presentation and analysis of data collected, and summary/conclusion. Well-structured papers make it easier for reviewers to scrutinize and evaluate the quality of arguments and analysis.

9. The main section headings for the paper should be centered on the page; minor sub-headings or sub-sections should be justified on the left hand side of the page. This will make it easier for reviewers to know that a sub-section is under a major section.

Transforming Science in South Africa
Development, Collaboration and Productivity

R. Sooryamoorthy

ISBN 9781137493064
Publication Date March 2015
Formats Hardcover Ebook (EPUB) Ebook (PDF)
Publisher Palgrave Macmillan

Science is the cornerstone of development. As the connection between scientific advancement and development becomes firmer, efforts are directed towards strengthening the scientific system. This is increasingly relevant and indispensable for countries on the path to scientific progress. Collaboration has been accepted as a key factor in scientific advancement, and the effects of collaboration are often manifested in the productivity of scientists.

This book explores how science in South Africa has grown due to collaboration over the course of its colonial, apartheid and democratic regimes. It provides a comprehensive analysis of the role of collaboration in science and its relation to communication, networks and the productivity of scientists. In giving a detailed account of the concept of scientific collaboration, the South African model presented in this book has great significance not only for other African countries but also for developing nations generally. Transforming Science in South Africa: Development, Collaboration and Productivity will be of interest to anyone who wants to know how science works nationally and internationally in the contemporary world.

R. Sooryamoorthy is Professor of Sociology at the University of Kwa-Zula-Natal, South Africa.

Abdul Karim Bangura’s 86th Book Published by Palgrave Macmillan

Toyin Falola and African Epistemologies
Abdul Karim Bangura
Hardcover (312 pages)
$90.00 + delivery
ISBN 9781137495167
Publication Date February 2015
Formats Hardcover
Publisher Palgrave Macmillan
This book entails four clearly articulated rubrics and overarching concepts as the foundational basis for analyzing Toyin Falola’s work: biography and knowledge production, Africa in the configuration of knowledge, the Yoruba in the configuration of knowledge, and the value of knowledge in terms of policies and politics. The chapters are located within broader epistemological perspectives and undertake critical interpretations and explanations of Falola’s writings. Falola’s ideas are extended into greater realms of meaning by employing analytical tools from the fields of political science, economics, literature, linguistics, computer science, mathematics, and religious studies. Furthermore, the book situates Falola’s ideas in their historical contexts. This approach involves examining related events occurring during the times of the main events of his studies, thereby allowing readers to grasp many subtle details and background information that account for the types of meanings embedded in his writings.
The originality of this book therefore hinges upon the clarity with which familiar but unconnected facts about Falola’s writings are marshaled into a simpler, pluridisciplinarily analytical unity.

Dipankar Sinha is Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Calcutta, “Development Narratives: Walking the Field in Rural West Bengal.” Development is a contested concept involving abundant local-level controversies and negotiations. Its multifarious workings on the ground are not always captured by the academic genre of research reports, with their classic methodologies of statistical sampling and objective questionnaires. Instead, this book offers a narrative based ‘field view’ of development, with the aim of gathering an intimate understanding of development as lived, negotiated and told. Based on the author’s fieldwork in rural West Bengal in the mid-1990s and 2000s, the narratives presented here foreground the political, moral and experiential dimensions of ordinary rural people’s everyday encounters with development.
Ishmael I. Munene,  “Multi-campus University Systems: African and Kenyan Experiences,”  Routledge, 2014. The book, part of Routledge series on international and comparative education, analyzes the paradox surrounding the performance of multi-campus university systems as avenues of broadening university access but whose structural success may be qualitatively contested.

Abdul Bangura et al, “Assessing Barack Obama’s Africa Policy Suggestions for Him and African Leaders, University Press of America, 2014.” This book contains critical analyses of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy instruments toward Africa and suggests how to continue, strengthen, and modify these policy instruments. The examination begins with the theme of policy continuity and change, followed by those on military intervention, competition and perceived threats, crisis management, politics, economic development, and social policy. Each chapter starts with an introduction of the policy instrument, provides an analysis of the instrument, and concludes with suggestions. This book presents the objectives for vibrant and lasting relations between Africa and the United States and the concrete measures to achieve them.

Malcolm X: A Biography

Front Cover
Greenwood Publishing Group, Incorporated, Aug 31, 2013 Biography & Autobiography179 pages
“Malcolm X: A Biography” is a historical and political analysis of the black leader’s life and times, offering a detailed treatment of its subject’s multifaceted story. Laid out chronologically, the book treats Malcolm’s life from his birth through his childhood, adult life, work as a Civil Rights activist, and assassination.
Readers will learn about the torching of Malcolm’s family’s Lansing, MI, home when he was a young child and about the death of his father a few years later–both acts attributed to a white supremacist organization. They will learn of his participation in narcotics, prostitution, and gambling rings and of his arrest and prison term. And they will learn about his discovery of the teachings of Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad, his conversion to the Muslim faith, his break with NOI, and his eventual espousal of faith in integration. Finally, the book looks at Malcolm’s assassination and at his legacy and importance today.

Development Communication: Contexts for the Twenty-first Century

Dipankar Sinha, Professor and Head, Department of Political Science, University of Calcutta.

This volume looks at the origins, theoretical underpinnings and major debates in the discipline of Development Communication. While arguing for its place among the social sciences, the author critically scrutinises both the concepts of ‘development’ and ‘communication’. This book highlights the discipline and its applications in India. The author has provided case studies of various development communication initiatives undertaken in West Bengal, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Pondicherry to illustrate these.

The volume will be invaluable for students and researchers in departments and institutes teaching mass communication, political science, development studies and sociology. more >>

Guy Martin,”African Political Thought” (New York:Palgrave Macmillan, 2012).

(From the back cover):

This definitive study surveys the concepts, values, and historical upheavals that have shaped African political systems from the ancient period to the post-colonial era and beyond. Beginning with the emergence of indigenous political institutions, it traces the most important developments in African history, including the Africanization of Islam, liberal democratic movements, socialism, Pan-Africanism, and Africanist-Populist reistance to the neo-liberal world order. The result is an invaluable resource on a region too often ignored in the history of political thought.

“In this excellent book, Guy Martin has conducted the most comprehensive study of African political thought by masterfully examining the various philosophical strands. As well, he systematically probed the historical development of each ideology from antiquity to present, including the significant, but under-researched contributions of indigenous African political system. This book is a must-read for those who are interested in African political philosophy” (George Klay Kieh, Jr., Professor of Political Science, University of West Georgia, USA).

Title: Ethnicity and Sociopolitical Change in Africa and Other Developing Countries:

A Constructive Discourse in State Building

According to Clayton J. Peoples, University of Nevada, Reno, “Saha has put together an impressive set of new articles and essays that challenge the conventional pessimistic view of ethnicity as a negative force in African and other developing nations, instead illustrating the positive role of ethnicity in political and social life. This is a refreshing perspective on the value of ethnic diversity at a time when ethnicity is too often cited as the primary source of social ills and conflict. It is therefore a valuable book for anyone seeking a more balanced perspective on the multifaceted—and potentially positive—role of ethnicity in the developing world.”

This edited collection of essays answers a basic question posed by contemporary discourse on state building: How might people’s identification with a particular ethnic group matter? Essays in this book use an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to understanding regional and local community culture and socio-political development in developing countries-especially in Sub-Saharan Africa-to argue that the state, as well as civil society, confers on cultural differences a legitimacy that can be achieved in no other way but by positive cooperation. Contributors from different countries look at local patterns in state building and modernization as they have unfolded over the course of the last fifty years. They claim that the people and ethnic groups in most developing countries adhere to a concept of popular sovereignty that testifies that aspects of positive and moral ethnicity can contribute to social change as in China, economic development as in India, or in a democratization process as in Rwanda and Burundi. The eventual methodological assumption made by these essays presumes that ethnic conflicts in such countries as Cyprus, Turkey, India, and Rwanda have no moral sanction; ethnicity has not assumed a political ideology. One conclusion reached by the contributors is that some form of accommodation between opposing ethnically diversified groups, as well as between state and ethnic elements, is feasible.
