The Darker Nations: A People's History of the Third World
The New Press, 2007 - 364 oldal
Here, from a brilliant young writer, is a paradigm-shifting history of both a utopian concept and global movementâ€”the idea of the Third World. The Darker Nations traces the intellectual origins and the political history of the twentieth century attempt to knit together the worldâ€™s impoverished countries in opposition to the United States and Soviet spheres of influence in the decades following World War II.
Spanning every continent of the global South, Vijay Prashadâ€™s fascinating narrative takes us from the birth of postcolonial nations after World War II to the downfall and corruption of nationalist regimes. A breakthrough book of cutting-edge scholarship, it includes vivid portraits of Third World giants like Indiaâ€™s Nehru, Egyptâ€™s Nasser, and Indonesiaâ€™s Sukarnoâ€”as well as scores of extraordinary but now-forgotten intellectuals, artists, and freedom fighters. The Darker Nations restores to memory the vibrant though flawed idea of the Third World, whose demise, Prashad ultimately argues, has produced a much impoverished international political arena.
