The Darker Nations: A People's History of the Third World

Sampul Depan
The New Press, 2008 - 364 halaman

Here, from a brilliant young writer, is a paradigm-shifting history of both a utopian concept and global movement‚€”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 world‚€™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 Prashad‚€™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 India‚€™s Nehru, Egypt‚€™s Nasser, and Indonesia‚€™s Sukarno‚€”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.
