- "A Review of "The Darker Nations" by Saswat Pattanayak on the Crosscurrents.com site
This is a long, generally positive review, though it questions part of Prashad's thesis about the decline of the Third World "project" and points out some areas that need further research.
- Review by Jacqui Freeman in Socialist Review
This is a shorter review. Freeman is also generally positive, though she has one criticism that I share: "My criticism would be that, although his sympathies obviously lie with the masses, the vast majority of the book is devoted to discussion of nationalist elites."

Some reviews of The Darker Nations by Vijay Prashad
I've been reading Vijay Prashad's The Darker Nations: A People's History of the Third World lately. It's a fascinating book, one that I think people doing work in transnational rhetoric should read. I haven't finished it yet, but I wanted to link to some reviews of the book that I've found on the web.
