The Bandung Conference was one of the great political events of the 1950s. More than half a century after the first great gathering of heads of independent Asian and African countries, this book presents some new and unusual perspectives on the history of the conference. Focusing on some under-researched individuals, countries and themes -- Lebanons Charles Malik, Egypts Gamal Abdel Nasser, Japanese intellectuals, Burmese socialists, Australian politicians -- the authors demonstrate the historical depth and repercussions of the conference.
