Temkin, Moshik. "Malcolm X in France, 1964-1965: Anti-Imperialism and Border Control in the Cold War Era." Decolonization and the Cold War: Negotiating Independence. Ed. Leslie James, and Elisabeth Leake. Bloomsbury Academic, 2015.


The Cold War and decolonization transformed the twentieth century world. The book begins by exploring ideas of modernity, development, and economics as Cold War and post-colonial projects and goes on to look at the era's intellectual history and investigate how emerging forms of identity fought for supremacy. Finally, the contributors question ideas of sovereignty and state control that move beyond traditional Cold War narratives.
