Summary

In the new unipolar world of globalization, the bargaining power and sense of solidarity of Third World countries have never been weaker. But their shared problems, this author argues, remain a reality which requires political expression. Does the Third World still even exist? What role, if any, can it have in the 21st century's new topography of power? Roy Ash Narain explores modern Latin American history, with emphasis on the changes wrought in the 1980s and 90s in the context of the continent's wider relations with the Third World and the USA.

Ash Narain Roy is currently Assistant Editor at The Hindustan Times, New Delhi.
