Entanglement, Global History, and the Arab Left

Abstract

During the heady 1960s and 1970s, a significant but understudied entanglement took place between the Arab Left and peers in other parts of the world. Arab revolutionary thinkers and political activists traveled to Europe, Latin America, and Africa, read “Euro-Marxist” theory, and generally took inspiration from the global New Left that was emerging from student protests and splinters from established Communist parties in many parts of the world. Conversely, revolutionaries traveled to the Middle East and met with, sometimes even trained with, Palestinian guerillas and other leftist groups. The meeting, exchange, translation, and mutual influence that tied the trajectory of people and movements together took place on ideological, social, and organizational levels. The New Left during the Cold War is an example of a topic in the history of the Arab
