9780140135138: An Introduction to Contemporary History

Geoffrey Barraclough isolates here some of the main themes of contemporary history. His purpose is to show the ways in which, since the closing years of the nineteenth century, the fundamental structure of world politics has changed. Our political vision must be adjusted accordingly. In Professor Barraclough's analysis, however, contemporary history is not confined to politics. Among the themes he pursues, in a book which boldly envisages the onset of a new epoch in the history of mankind, are the impact of science, the spread of technology, the challenge of Marxist ideology, and the re-orientation, in this century, of all the arts.
