Chapter Summary

The fourth world war the author refers to is the Global Development War. This chapter explains what the author means in using the term "Global Development War". It begins by identifying certain key features of the three world wars that started earlier in the twentieth century, and then offers a more detailed description of the Global Development War itself. In particular, the chapter enumerates the main elements of the conflicting development ideologies that are at work today. To put it in its starkest form, the Global Development War may be seen as a war over the developmental ideology that is to be adopted and followed in the coming years and particularly whether to accept or reject an ideology of liberal, intelligent, participatory, multilateral, and sustainable human development. The author closes the chapter by indicating the allies, the adversaries, and the fields of battle of the Global Development War.
