The whole idea of this book is to go through the last 60 years from the conclusion of the second world war to the recent bombing of Serbia by NATO to show how our world has changed.
With in depth analyis of politics,economics and science it gives the reader the knowledge that the last 60 years has been a rollar coaster ride for the world at large and lays the foundation of the problems that we see in our world today and give better understanding of them.
A highly recommended book if you want a better understanding of the history of Todays headlines...

What the other descriptions don't mention is that not only cold-war topics are included here. As the title implies, African former colonies, Asian tigers, and other parts of our global history are explained as well. The author also includes a few chapters on social changes that can't be assigned to certain regions.
From reading this book I've gained a better understanding of how current events in the news came to be. Highly recommendable.
