Abstract

In this article the author examines anti-colonial movements. She observes that among the movement leaders who were victorious, internationalism was uncommon. In countries where the bourgeois nationalist movement was stronger, independence did not rely as much on arms; in countries where the communist current was dominant, armed force was frequently used. The article identifies a strong contribution of the United States to decolonization. In the global inter-imperialist system, it was harmful to U.S. trade that countries like Great Britain and France maintained colonies and access to territories and natural resources inaccessible
to North Americans. Today, we face a market in which the productive chains of the center countries depend on raw material from the periphery (as well as cheap or forced labor). These are profoundly unequal exchanges or, in a word, neocolonialism.
