This book examines the relationship between the postwar German states and Third World liberation movements through historical analysis of humanitarian aid programs. Although these efforts functioned as an arena for Cold War power struggles, they fostered transnational collaboration. Hong brings a much-needed historical perspective to contemporary debates on global governance.
