The recent and ongoing crises in the Middle East, the Persian Gulf, Central America, and southern Africa have been and continue to be approached in very different ways by the United States and its West European allies. Payne provides a comprehensive analysis of the underlying tensions, as well as cooperation, between the U.S. and NATO countries in out-of-area conflicts. The book maintains that the U.S. must adapt its foreign policy to a new international order, rather than continuing its old political and ideological confrontationalism in the Third World.

This volume is the first fully comprehensive account of film production in the Third World. Although they are usually ignored or marginalized in histories of world cinema," Third World countries now produce well over half of the world’s films. Roy Armes sets out initially to place this huge output in a wider context, examining the forces of tradition and colonialism that have shaped the Third World--defined as those countries that have emerged from Western control but have not fully developed their economic potential or rejected the capitalist system in favor of some socialist alternative. He then considers the paradoxes of social structure and cultural life in the post-independence world, where even such basic concepts as "nation," "national culture," and "language" are problematic. The first experience of cinema for such countries has invariably been that of imported Western films, which created the audience and, in most cases, still dominate the market today. Thus, Third World film makers have had to ssert their identity against formidable outside pressures. The later sections of the book look at their output from a number of angles: in terms of the stages of overall growth and corresponding stages of cinematic development; from the point of view of regional evolution in Asia, Africa, and Latin America; and through a detailed examination of the work of some of the Third World’s most striking film innovators. In addition to charting the broad outlines of filmic developments too little known in Europe and the United States, the book calls into question many of the assumptions that shape conventional film history. It stresse the role of distribution in defining and limiting production, queries simplistic notions of independent "national cinemas," and points to the need to take social and economic factors into account when considering authorship in cinema. Above all, the book celebrates the achievements of a mass of largely unknown film makers who, in difficult circumstances, have distinctively expanded our definitions of the art of cinema. Roy Armes, who lives in London, has written nine books on film, his most recent being French Cinema. He spent more than three years researching this volume.

For example, from 1970 onwards Third World industry speeded up its growth rate
to 8-7 per cent a^ year, while Western growth slowed to 3*2 per cent a year. As a
result the Third World share of world manufacturing rose to 9 per cent in 1977.

These essays, originally presented at a conference held at the University of Pennsylvania in March 1984, show that particular U.S. policies have played an important role in engendering resentment of the United States in the so-called Third World. The first chapter presents an overview of the problem and proposes the structure of an approach to it, including a typology of anti-Americanism. This is followed by essays which are country-specific or regional in scope (Mexico, Latin America, the Arab World, Turkey, South Asia, Malaysia, Africa) in which the contributors flesh out some of the cultural, ideological, and historical factors which have influenced the particular expressions of anti-Americanism in various parts of the third world. Finally, three contributors analyze the phenomenon in functional areas (the multinational corporations, the United Nations) and in terms of implications for the United States.
