America and the Third World: Revolution and Intervention
America and the Third World: Revolution and Intervention
By John L.S. Girling
Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1980, 276 pp.

A discursive, somewhat theoretical but stimulating study of the "global involvement" of the United States. The author sees no necessary divergence between the interests of Third World countries and the United States, but he acknowledges the need for occasional superpower intervention to maintain stability in the international system.
