"Well written, broad-gauged, and just plain smart, The Right Kind of Revolution ably synthesizes, indeed moves beyond, the scholarship on American efforts to `improve' the Third World. The new standard work on American modernization and development policies, it has much to teach scholars and graduate students while still being suitable for use in undergraduate courses."---David Engerman, Brandeis University, author of Know Your Enemy: The Rise and Fall of America's Soviet Experts Development, and the Global Cold War and Knowledge and Postmodernism in Historical Perspective.

This book examines competition and collaboration among Western powers, the socialist bloc, and the Third World for control over humanitarian aid programs during the Cold War. Young-sun Hong's analysis reevaluates the established parameters of German history. On the one hand, global humanitarian efforts functioned as an arena for a three-way political power struggle. On the other, they gave rise to transnational spaces that allowed for multidimensional social and cultural encounters. Hong paints an unexpected view of the global humanitarian regime: Algerian insurgents flown to East Germany for medical care, barefoot Chinese doctors in Tanzania, and West and East German doctors working together in the Congo. She also provides a rich analysis of the experiences of African trainees and Asian nurses in the two Germanys. This book brings an urgently needed historical perspective to contemporary debates on global governance, which largely concern humanitarianism, global health, south-north relationships, and global migration.

The Oxford Encyclopedia of American Military and Diplomatic History, a two-volume set, will offer both assessment and analysis of the key episodes, issues and actors in the military and diplomatic history of the United States. At a time of war, in which ongoing efforts to recalibrate American diplomacy are as imperative as they are perilous, the Oxford Encyclopedia will present itself as the first recourse for scholars wishing to deepen their understanding of the crucial features of the historical and contemporary foreign policy landscape and its perennially martial components. Entries will be written by the top diplomatic and military historians and key scholars of international relations from within the American academy, supplemented, as is appropriate for an encyclopedia of diplomacy, with entries from foreign-based academics, in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. The crucial importance of the subject is reflected in the popularity of university courses dedicated to diplomatic and military history and the enduring appeal of international relations (IR) as a political science discipline drawing on both. The Oxford Encyclopedia will be a basic reference tool across both disciplines - a potentially very significant market.

During the most idealistic years of John F. Kennedy’s Alliance for Progress development program, Bolivia was the highest per capita recipient of U.S. foreign aid in Latin America. Nonetheless, Washington’s modernization programs in early 1960s' Bolivia ended up on a collision course with important sectors of the country’s civil society, including radical workers, rebellious students, and a plethora of rightwing and leftwing political parties. In From Development to Dictatorship, Thomas C. Field Jr. reconstructs the untold story of USAID’s first years in Bolivia, including the country’s 1964 military coup d’état. Field draws heavily on local sources to demonstrate that Bolivia’s turn toward anticommunist, development-oriented dictatorship was the logical and practical culmination of the military-led modernization paradigm that provided the liberal underpinnings of Kennedy’s Alliance for Progress. In the process, he explores several underappreciated aspects of Cold War liberal internationalism: the tendency of “development” to encourage authoritarian solutions to political unrest, the connection between modernization theories and the rise of Third World armed forces, and the intimacy between USAID and CIA covert operations. Challenging the conventional dichotomy between ideology and strategy in international politics, From Development to Dictatorship engages with a growing literature on development as a key rubric for understanding the interconnected processes of decolonization and the Cold War.

Die Forschungen zur sowjetischen Politik gegenueber Entwicklungsl�ndern sch�pfen die verfuegbaren Quellen bisher kaum aus. Dabei liefert ihre Analyse einen Schluessel zum Verst�ndnis der UdSSR als Weltmacht sowie zur globalen Dynamik des Ost-West-Konfliktes. In Indonesien, das zu den Spitzenempf�ngern sowjetischer Hilfsleistungen geh�rte, konkurrierte Moskau sowohl mit den USA als auch mit der Volksrepublik China um Einflu�. Besonders Chru�c'ev stellte sich dieser Herausforderung, indem er zum einen das theoretische Fundament der Stalin-Zeit modifizierte, um nach Unabh�ngigkeit strebende Kolonien bzw. blockfreie Staaten zu unterstuetzen, und sich zum anderen in den Bereichen Wirtschaft, Milit�r, Kultur, und selbst Religion in Indonesien engagierte.

Die Mehrheit der westdeutschen Bürger stand der Entwicklungshilfe gespalten gegenüber: Natürlich müsse man helfen, aber allzu viel wollte man nicht in dieses "Fass ohne Boden" schütten. In den 1960er Jahren geriet zudem die Umsetzung der Hilfe in die Kritik. Zu den lautesten Stimmen zählten die der "68er". Bonn reagierte mit einer Vielzahl von Reformen, die insgesamt auf eine selbstlosere Hilfe abzielten. Bastian Hein erforscht Verlauf und Scheitern dieses sozialliberalen Projekts, indem er die Grundzüge der Entwicklungspolitik, die Praxis der Entwicklungsdienste und die Haltung der Bevölkerung analysiert. Die Art, wie die Bundesrepublik mit der Dritten Welt umging, lässt Rückschlüsse auf ihre Gesamtentwicklung in den "langen 1960er Jahren" zu.

Buruma und Margalit definieren "Okzidentalismus" als den blinden Hass gegen die Errungenschaften liberaler Gesellschaften, für dessen Motive manch westliche Intellektuelle bis heute Sympathie empfinden. Die Vorurteile gegen den Westen, der unter der Diktatur des Geldes steht und scheinbar jegliche verbindliche Moral seiner Diesseitigkeit geopfert hat, reichen bis nach Europa. Ian Buruma und Avishai Margalit finden hier ähnliche Denkweisen wie in der islamischen Welt, bei konservativen Kulturkritikern ebenso wie bei der radikalen Linken. Ein provokatives Buch, in bester aufklärerischer Tradition.
