dc.description.abstractThe 1960s saw a clash over how the international political system should relate to the Third World. The great powers of the United States and Soviet Union insisted on viewing the Third World as a proxy battleground for the Cold War, advancing a discourse dominated by the imperatives of order and national security. At the same time, dozens of newly independent African and Asian states began to see the Cold War as a diversion from the true struggle – a struggle between the North and the South over colonialism, white racism, and economic exploitation. In place of order and national security, these countries demanded emancipation and justice. The height of this clash, and the focal point of Ryan Irwin's doctoral dissertation, is the transformation of South African Apartheid into an international political crisis.en
