Product Description


It is startling how insulated the West has remained from the thinking, achievements, and struggles of the great majority of the world's people. This lucid and well-informed study reveals how much there is to learn from this rich and vibrant record. --Noam Chomsky

At a time when the ideologues of the Washington Consensus appeal to former colonies to free themselves from history, Vijay Prashad recalls a past without which it is impossible to understand the present. --Tariq Ali

Vijay Prashad is our own Frantz Fanon. His writing of protest is always tinged with the beauty of hope. --Amitava Kumar

About the Author

Vijay Prashad is the George and Martha Kellner Professor of South Asian History at Trinity College, Connecticut. He is the author of a number of books, including 'The Darker Nations: a People's History of the Third World' and 'Arab Spring, Libyan Winter'.
