    The collapse of Western colonial empires after the Second World War led to a series of vicious struggles for power in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, whose consequences haunt us still. With insight and authority, this magisterial book takes the reader on a historical journey from Palestine to Pakistan, from Kenya to Cuba, from Algeria to Vietnam, to reveal the national aspirations, ideological conflicts and Cold War realpolitik that have shaped the world we live in today.
