This book compares the trajectories of states and societies in Africa, Asia and Latin America under neoliberalism, a time marked by serial economic crises, escalating social conflicts, the remilitarisation of North-South relations and the radicalisation of social and nationalist forces.

Sam Moyo and Paris Yeros bring together researchers and activists from the three continents to assess the state of national sovereignty and the challenges faced by popular movements today. They show that global integration has widened social and regional inequalities within countries, exacerbated ethnic, caste, and racial conflicts, and generally reduced the bureaucratic capacities of states to intervene in a defensive way. Moreover, inequalities between the countries of the South have also widened. These structural tensions have all contributed to several distinct political trajectories among states: from fracture and foreign occupation, to radicalisation and uncertain re-stabilisation.

This book redraws the debate on the political economy of the contemporary South and provides students of international studies with an important collection of readings.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book is about the new nationalist resurgence [against neo-liberalism]. It is the work of a committed and engaged scholarship, one which does not pretend to be neutral in the struggle between imperialism and the working people' -- Issa Shivji, Mwalimu Nyerere University Professor, University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
'Provides essential clues to understand the present nature of the state in the periphery and to re-connect the South through all its dimensions' -- Gladys Lechini, Professor of International Relations, National University of Rosario, Argentina
'Provides a holistic and systematic investigation of the relevance of the National Question in the contemporary South. It is one of the finest collections to engage with the relevant issues at the current juncture' -- Praveen Jha, Centre for Economics Studies and Planning (CESP), Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi, India
