Book Launch: The Darker Nations

In recent years, there has been unprecedented attention paid to the Third World and the economic and social success and failures of its post-colonial nations. Vijay Prashad, author of The Darker Nations: A People’s History of the Third World (The New Press, 2007), discusses the history of the developing world and its current struggles.

Vijay Prashad is Professor and Director of International Studies at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.

In addition, Prashad writes a monthly column for Frontline, India and contributes to Counterpunch. Prashad’s most recent books include The Darker Nations: A People’s History of the Third World and Dispatches from Latin America: Experiments Against Neoliberalism. He is the author of ten other books, including Karma of Brown Folk and Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting, both of which were chosen by the Village Voice as books of the year.
