By Carol Pateman and Charles Mills. (Cam- bridge, UK: Polity Press, 2007. 306 pp. hardcover, $69.95; softcover, $26.95.) Th e Darker Nations: A People’s History of the Th ird World . By Vijay Prashad. (New York and London: Th e New Press, 2007. 364 pp. hardcover, $26.95; softcover, $19.95.) In distinctive ways, the two works under review grapple with injustice in an age of formal equality between countries and among people within countries. Prashad’s book concerns eﬀ orts by leaders of the ‘darker nations’ to make good on the formal international equality achieved through polit- ical independence by advancing an agenda consisting of economic sover- eignty, international peace, and a democratic UN. Prashad traces the rise of the Th ird World – a project to advance this agenda, not a place – details its weaknesses, and analyzes its demise due to internal and external forces. Th rough eight place-based chapters, part one shows how the Th ird World project (TWP) was stitched together. Th ree chapters capture the essence of the TWP.
