Red Star Over the Third World book cover

Red Star Over the Third World

Vijay Prashad

"Red Star Over the Third World" explores the impact of the October Revolution on countries around the world, from Vietnam to South Africa. The revolution served as a source of inspiration, proving that the working class and the peasantry could form their own government and overthrow autocratic leadership. Author Vijay Prashad's hope is that a new generation will see the importance of this revolution, with a focus on the working class and peasantry in parts of the world that suffered under colonial domination. Prashad is the Executive Director of Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research and author of "The Darker Nations."
