Would there have been a Third World without the Second Perhaps but it would have looked very different Although most histories of these geopolitical blocs and their constituent societies and cultures are written in reference to the West the interdependence of the Second World in the East and the Third World is evident not only from a common nomenclature but also from their near simultaneous disappearance around 1990 From Internationalism to Postcolonialism addresses this historical blind spot by recounting the story of two Cold War era cultural formations that claimed to represent the Third World project in literature and cinema the Afro Asian Writers Association 1958 1991 and the Tashkent Festival for African Asian and Latin American Film 1968 1988 The inclusion of writers and filmmakers from the Soviet Caucasus and Central Asia and extensive Soviet support aligned these organizations with Soviet internationalism While these cultural alliances between the Second and the Third World never achieved their stated aim the literary and cinematic independence from the West of these societies from the West they did forge what Ngugi wa Thiong o called the links that bind us along which now canonical postcolonial authors texts and films could circulate across the non Western world until the end of the Cold War In the process of this historical reconstruction From Internationalism to Postcolonialism inverts the traditional relationship between Soviet and postcolonial studies rather than studying the post Soviet experience through the lens of postcolonial theory it documents the multiple ways in which that theory and its attendant literary and cinematic production have been shaped by the Soviet experience
