The Third World in Latin America

(p.394) Conclusion
Latin America and the Global Cold War

Odd Arne Westad

University of North Carolina Press

Moving past the nationalist/internationalist dyad, this chapter contributes the book’s forward-looking conclusion, describing how the countries of Latin America and the Global South continue to search for a meaningful prism through which to articulate their essentially anti-imperialist alternative to globalization. Calling for a broad reconsideration of Latin American Third Worldism, the conclusion contextualizes the remarkably short-lived Third World moment, strictly defined, by looking backward to the nineteenth century and forward into the twenty-first. In doing so, the conclusion suggests that the Global South can serve as a promising framework for future research on Latin American history.
