The end of the Cold War has changed all the parameters of the world and not least of these is the relationship between the rich, developed North and the poor, developing South. Without the compulsions of the Cold War and the need for its two sides to seek allies in the South, the Third World will now find itself increasingly marginalized by a West which sees it only as a series of depressed trading partners to be managed or ignored depending upon circumstances now completely beyond the South's control, while the West itself appears to have lost both its purpose and its way as the former comunist bloc disintegrates. This book examines the growth of the Third World concept, and the widening ideological gap between North and South. It also looks at the fear of a single super-power (the USA) dominating the world and examines the fact that the end of the Cold War presents the South with a new opportunity to dispense with aid and stand on its own feet.
