In The Darker Nations, praised internationally by critics as a welcome antidote to apologists for empire, award-winning historian Vijay Prashad tells the story of how the Cold War created the Third World-at once a political project, an anti-imperialist utopian vision, and a galvanizing ideology that transcended geography. Bringing to life the giants of the movement like India's Nehru, Egypt's Nasser, and Indonesia's Sukarno, as well as crucial events such as the now-forgotten Brussels conclave of the League Against Imperialism and the launch of the Third World project in Bandung, Indonesia, in 1955, Prashad's paradigm-busting history brilliantly restores to memory the flawed but vibrant idea of the Third World. Book jacket.
Vijay Prashad is the George and Martha Kellner Chair of South Asian History and the director of international studies at Trinity College, Connecticut
