During the long period when the world was divided between East and West and the Cold War threatened devastating consequences, the non-aligned movement was one of the few institutions that consistently sought other outcomes - not in its own interest but in the interest of humanity. Comprised of more than 100 states free of any formal alliances with a major power, the non-aligned movement provides aid to countries striving to gain independence, eliminate poverty, and develop their economies.
Historical Dictionary of the Non-Aligned Movement and Third World presents what the non-aligned movement and third world sought - and at times achieved - in more than 200 cross-referenced dictionary entries on important people, organizations, and conferences, as well as key issues and concepts. Entries are supported by an extensive chronology, a list of acronyms, an introduction to the movement, and a bibliography for further research.
