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.

Review:

'As definitive a study of international history in the twentieth century as is available anywhere in the world today.' – Akira Iriye, Charles Warren Professor of History, Harvard University, USA

'The best single volume study now available ... admirably suited to undergraduate survey courses. It is easy to use with extensive and reliable information ... the work of four authors all of whom are published authorities in their fields. It is clearly written and effective in explaining issues ... offering a nice balance between international developments and regional matters.' – Michael F. Hopkins, Liverpool Hope University, UK

'A comprehensive and scholarly survey of modern history with a strong European dimension. This volume is good value and ideal for teaching purposes at the undergraduate level.' – R. Gerald Hughes, Annual Bulletin of Historical Literature

'International History of the Twentieth Century is an emanation from a world we have lost ... the book is both concise and efficient ... this is a well-ordered text.' – Alex Danchev, The Times Higher Education Supplement

'Students will be grateful to the authors of this textbook for providing such a clear and coherent guide to the tumultuous developments of the Twentieth Century and the historical controversies that they have generated. It is particularly important because it allows students to understand the century as a whole rather than one divided by the first and second world wars and the cold war.' – Sir Lawrence D. Freedman, Professor of War Studies, King's College, London, UK

'A comprehensive and scholarly survey of modern history. This volume is good value and ideal for teaching purposes at the undergraduate level.' – R. Gerald Hughes, Annual Bulletin of Historical Literature
