Book Description

11 Dec 2003
International Relations Since 1945 is a one-volume authoritative historical analysis of international relations during the Cold War and its aftermath. It both describes and interprets events since 1945 for an undergraduate audience. It explores how the Cold War impacted upon world politics as a whole, but also deals with such important regional problems as the Middle East, the development of European integration and the end of the European empires in Africa and Asia. While focusing on political change, careful attention is paid to the evolution of the global economy and the interplay between international and domestic developments, as well as to the growth of 'interdependence'. Particular attention is paid to the role of the United States, especially in the 1990s when it became the world's only Superpower. The text covers the nature of the Cold War, the development of the Western and Eastern blocs, North-South, decolonization and Third World issues, international economic relations, armaments and nuclear strategy and globalization.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastically Readable 16 Jan 2011
By LMS - Published on
I had to read sections of this for uni and was happy to find an history textbook that was not only informative, but easy to read and very well laid out. Worth the buy for students and those wanting to bone up on their history knowledge alike.
