About the Author

VIJAY PRASHAD is a prolific writer and the author of several books, including four for LeftWord Books. He teaches at Trinity College, Connecticut, USA.


"At a time when the politicians and ideologues of the Washington Consensus appeal to former colonies to free themselves from history Vijay Prashad stubbornly carries on, recalling a past without which it is impossible to understand the present." Tariq Ali "The Third World was not a place," argues Vijay Prashad. "It was a project." "The book alerts us to the intimate details of both the aspirations that set the Third World idea going and the cupidities that brought it to ground." Badri Raina, Frontline "This is a comprehensive, informative and rewarding book to read, and documents a critical part of our international politics and culture which is much misinterpreted nowadays." Economic & Political Weekly "The book invites comparison to Edward Said's Orientalism. Vijay Prashad's passionate commitment, his intellectual brio, his literary style, are all immensely impressive." Tehelka "Based on prodigious research, this ambitious and wide-ranging book presents a fascinating account of the Third World, its rise and fall. Prashad's study represents issue-based international history at its best. He weaves together the tale of Third World politics with stories about personalities, problems of revolution and social change, ideological tensions and people's aspirations." The Hindu"
