Revolution and World Order

Oxford University Press

The Second World War was followed by a new kind of challenge to international society from radical and revolutionary Third World states. Sukarno's Indonesia, Castro's Cuba, Mao's China, Gaddafi's Libya, and Khomeini's Islamic Revolution in Iran all displayed different aspects of this challenge. All shared an underlying perception of world politics in terms of an ongoing conflict between rich and poor, oppressed and oppressors, and old and new, which made them advocates of international revolution in some form. All encountered strong opposition from the US.
