About the Authors
  • In 1955, a conference was held in Bandung, Indonesia that was attended by representatives from twenty-nine nations. Against the backdrop of crumbling European empires, Asian and African leaders forged new alliances and established anti-imperial principles for a new world order. The conference came to capture popular imaginations across the Global South and, as counterpoint to the dominant world order, it became both an act of collective imagination and a practical political project for decolonization that inspired a range of social movements, diplomatic efforts, institutional experiments and heterodox visions of the history and future of the world. In this book, leading international scholars explore what the spirit of Bandung has meant to people across the world over the past decades and what it means today. It analyzes Bandung's complicated and pivotal impact on global history, international law and, most of all, justice struggles after the end of formal colonialism.

    • The first sustained study of the 1955 Bandung Conference in international law and global history
    • Examines Bandung from multiple perspectives including international law, history, social theory, literature, philosophy, cinema, and art
    • Examines Bandung's implications for today's global order and an anti-imperial international law

    Reviews & endorsements

    Advance praise: 'This book is an incredibly rich tool to all those seeking to understand the paths towards the civilizational transitions needed to face the multiple crises of climate, food, poverty, and meaning. It should be of great interest to students and scholars in fields well beyond international law, including anthropology, geography, sociology, global studies, and cultural studies.' Arturo Escobar, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

    Advance praise: 'Until now, there has been no authoritative re-telling of the history of international law that de-centers the Westaphalian myth. Taking Bandung as its inspiration, this book critically engages the third world’s resistance to the global north and examines the silences, blind spots and the underbelly of its decolonizing nationalism in re-writing and re-configuring mainstream accounts of the history of international law as well as its operative logics and normative commitments.' James Gathii, Loyola University, Chicago and Trade Policy Centre in Africa (TRAPCA), Arusha

    Advance praise: 'For some time now, the Bandung conference is regarded as an event whose significance has come to pass along with the spirit of anti-imperial resistance it once symbolized. This book challenges such an assessment not only by revisiting the contested history of the conference but by analyzing its legacy for a rethinking of the international legal order, its past and present.' Saba Mahmood, University of California, Berkeley

    Advance praise: 'The era of Bandung is over, and its spirit has dissipated. But that does not mean that the history that was made there is no longer relevant or that the spirit cannot be conjured to unimaginable feats in our present day. Bandung, Global History, and International Law mines that old history for nuggets that might inform our mapless present.' Vijay Prashad, Trinity College, Hartford
