Overview

Darker Nations: A People's History of the Third World by Vijay Prashad

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.
