Summary

In Nation and Revolution, Anouar Abdel-Malek examines the dynamics of power and social change and shows how the super-imposition of new geo-politics on the existing order of national states has brought about the primacy of the political in contemporary history. Taking issue with those who maintain that the Western proletariat constitutes the main impetus for social change today, Abdel-Malek argues that the united front historically necessary to break the hold of hegemonism will be based on a new “East Wind” combining mighty waves of national liberation and social revolution.
