Overview

This stimulating analysis of Europe's role in world history focuses on Western economic expansion into the regions loosely known as the "Third World." Bernard Waites begins with the very origins of the term "Third World" and the attempts to theorize global inequality in modern history on the part of the "dependency" writers and those writing from a "world systems" perspective. Subsequent chapters analyze the intercontinental connections forged by Europeans with Latin America, Asia, Africa and South Asia, challenging many common assumptions about the Third World's history and providing an essential context to contemporary debates about post-colonialism.
