This chapter examines the global influence of the Russian, Chinese, and Cuban new men. The first is the similar efforts in remaking people in the Soviet Union, China, and Cuba. The second is the admiration of the communist new man by some Westerners who became alienated from their own societies and sought alternative social systems. The third is the favorable perceptions of the communist new man by some Third World leaders, who were seeking ideas and methods for developing their own countries and for nation building despite many obstacles, and were inspired by the alleged selflessness and sacrifice of people in communist countries.

Keywords:   Soviet Man, Chinese new man, Cuban new man, communist new man, social systems, Third World leaders, nation building, communist countries
