Another simplified survey of the emerging nations. This one focuses on Asia and Black Africa as turning worms in a world where power is no longer monopolized by white Christian Westerners. ""Policy"" is viewed on the level of aid programs, U.N. alignments, aboveboard diplomacy; it excludes military assistance, private investment, trade patterns...and the war in Vietnam. Much about Sino-Soviet competition in Africa, nothing about U.S. influence in the Congo. Too much about minor nations like Portugal, Spain, ireland (and an obsolete section on Israel); too little explicit description and comparison. Melady's comments are fraught with halftruth, confusion, and error: Nkrumah and Sukarno are labelled ""Marxian socialists""; under Dulles, ""anti-colonialism evolved into anti-neutralism""; backward countries are disaffected from the U.S. because the latter always gives, the former always receive. Written in current-events-classroom jargon, this volume is dispensable for the student, stultifying for the general reader.
