International History of the Twentieth Century

Pirmais vāks

This major new global history of the twentieth century is written by four prominent international historians for first-year undergraduate level and upward.

Using their thematic and regional expertise, the authors have produced an authoritative yet accessible account of the history of international relations in the last century, covering events in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas. They focus on the history of relations between states and on the broad ideological, economic and cultural forces that have influenced the evolution of international politics over the past one hundred years. Among the areas this book covers are:

  • the decline of European hegemony over the international order
  • the diffusion of power to the two superpowers
  • the rise of newly independent states in Asia and Africa
  • the course and consequences of the three major global conflicts of the twentieth century: the Great War, the Second World War and the Cold War.

This is an absolutely essential book in the study of twentieth century history. Students will find themselves lacking without it.
