Summary
"The Darker Nations reconstructs the prehistory of the Third World, recalling the now-forgotten 1927 Brussels conclave of the League Against Imperialism, an international effort that brought Albert Einstein together with Jawaharlal, Nehru, Madame Sun Yat-Sen, and hundreds of other far-flung revolutionaries. The narrative then goes on to recount the 1955 conference in Bandung, Indonesia, where twenty-nine African and Asian countries launched the Third World project. Prashad traces the hopes of this decades-long global movement, and delineates its limitations and ultimate downfall in the 1980s."--BOOK JACKET
