Since the dissolution of the Western empire after World War II, the impact of the West has created a crisis of identity for non-Western, especially Muslim, societies. In this highly informed and readable work, Dr. Gordon reviews the varied responses-political, economic, and psychological-that have resulted from the Western challenge. Whether the West is accepted as a model or rejected as a force for exploitation and alienation, it has played and will continue to play a crucial role in the quest of newly independent nations of the Third World for identification and self-definition.
