"This collection helps clarify the complex interrelationship of the Soviet-US conflict while addressing many parts of the world that have usually been left out of the discussion of the Cold War. The book contributes much to the understanding of the modern world in the late twentieth century." --CHOICE
"This volume vividly illuminates how the Cold War shaped developments in the Third World and how nationalist leaders in Asia, Africa, and Latin America sought to assert their agency and modernization projects in a bipolar world. There is no better introduction to this subject than this collection of essays by some of the world's most eminent scholars." --Melvyn P. Leffler, author of For the Soul of Mankind
"Examining both regions and functional topics, these penetrating essays illuminate the ways in which the Cold War and the states and societies in the Third World interacted and shaped each other. The volume is filled with current research for the experts but also is accessible to a wide audience." --Robert Jervis, Columbia University
