Revolution in the Third World

Revolution in the Third World

By Gerard Chaliand

Viking, 1977, 256 pp.

A former Le Monde correspondent, sympathetic to the Third World in armed conflicts he has observed at first hand, reflects upon successes - Vietnam, China - and failures of revolutions in developing countries. Chaliand escapes straitjacket Marxist analysis and offers insights for theory and practice not found in truly ideological tracts.
