Keith Robbins' accessible and stimulating account of world history since 1945 provides a framework for making sense of the political and social developments of the period. The focus is firmly on global political interaction. The underlying theme of the book is the tension between the world conceived as a unity and as a diversity. From this perspective, the author discusses the impulse towards globalization in the aftermath of the Second World War, the divisions inherent in the Cold War, and the shifting allegiances and conflicts in the decades which followed.

Review:

It is an unenviable task to attempt a concise account of world history since 1945. Keith Robbins, however, succeeds in this laudable aim. The book should appeal to both the general reader and to all undergraduate students of history and politics. (Sir Edward Heath)

Keith Robbins presents a succinct and engaging introduction to the post-war world. It takes a historian of skill and poise to chart a trail across such a complicated landscape. (Norman Davies, author of Europe: A History)

About the Author:

Keith Robbins was educated in Bristol and at Magdalen and St. Anthony's Colleges, Oxford. He has taught at the University of York, Glasgow University, and the University of Wales, Lampeter, where he is now Vice-Chancellor. He is the author of numerous books on British and world history.
