Item Description: Konark Publication, New Delhi, 2010. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 432pp. The voice of the underdog is now hardly ever heard in international relations discussions. There was a time in the 1960s and 1970s when it was. The success of freedom struggles had spread across the nations of Africa and Asia during those years. The recent achievement of independence brought self-confidence to their leaders and people; they had their own innovative ideas about IR: just what the subject should be about; the most appropriate worldview in which it should be framed; how best to study it; and the most interesting ways to report on it. So there was new thinking about the nature of colonialism and what the anti-colonial struggles had been about, the Cold War and the world view portrayed by standard schools of IR. In doing so the voice and presence on the international stage of the smaller nations became far more significant: it was these nations that had won the struggle against the bigger imperial powers; for them freedom was not the result of imperial rivalry; nor was it a gift, the product of their erstwhile rulers generosity; it was forcefully wrested from them, often the outcome of a protracted war of independence. The underdog had brought an end to empire. Now they would be able to steer their own course in IR, free of great power rivalries. They saw the so-called Cold War not as a worldwide encounter between two Leviathans that standard modernity described; in fact they saw no Cold War at all. Those years saw only the unceasing attempt by one or both of the big powers, often in collaboration, to extend their power and control and ideology over the weaker nations and, more importantly, the refusal of the latter to submit. As the great powers tried to set up new versions of empire it was again the underdog that brought them to an end. Over the years this alternative world view faded. The strength of the established academia ensured that no alternative was encouraged. Indeed, the established world view based on modernity acquired increasing moral and scientific value and authority. As the media became more powerful, globalised, and concentrated in fewer hands, alternatives were pushed ever further into the fringes. Leaders, commentators and experts in think tanks were content to forget that there had ever been an alternative. So that today we have those who praise the big powers and those who criticize them but both share a single world view in which the underdog is irrelevant or victimised, a source of sickness or a shelter for sundry psychopaths; to be ignored or pitied, quarantined or incarcerated. This book is a memoir about one way in which many of these things were thought and written about in the 1960s and 1970s. It is a useful reminder that there was a time when the real voice of the underdog was heard, not just the ventriloquial major powers and their multi-hued mimes; that we need to beware the relentless homogenization of a subject that takes up so much time and space in todays written and visual media and in the thinking of our leaders and foreign offices.
