The article discusses that newly independent states of Asia, Africa and the Middle East are facing the problem of choosing the form of government, which would lead to the growth of economy of that nation. Three kinds of problems viz environmental, operational and conceptual problems that these newly created states often face are needed to be solved. The article states that these newly created states are struggling to get on their own feet and set their own course. Competing ideas, people and organizations descending upon them from the Atlantic and the Soviet worlds overwhelmed these states. These countries had little time to reflect upon the issues of national policy or to study new programs. The new politics in those nations must seek to solve the problems that arouse out of the abrupt dislocation of ancient and static societies suddenly thrust into a turbulent, fast changing world. The new politics begin with the effort to recover intellectually and spiritually from the painful effects of colonialism, imitation and tradition.
