Product Details


“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

“Vijay Prashad helps to uncover the shining worlds hidden under official history and dominant media.”
—Eduardo Galeano

“With eloquence, wit, and urgency, Prashad tells the real story of global restructuring, the dismantling of the Third World Project, the rise and demise of neoliberalism, and how the future of the planet is tied to the dreams of the dispossessed.”
—Robin D.G. Kelley, author of Africa Speaks, America Answers: Modern Jazz in Revolutionary Times

“Vijay Prashad has courageously and meticulously forged a fascinating study that challenges mainstream, Western narratives of world history. In this provocative and sweeping exploration, the injustices and subjugation of peoples in the global South are not only made visible but political.”
—Susanne Soederberg, Professor in Global Development Studies, Queens University
