This hugely successful 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 and seamless 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. The third edition is thoroughly updated throughout to take account of the most recent research and global developments, and includes a new chapter on the international history of human rights and its advocacy organizations, including NGOs. Additional new features include: New material on the Arab Spring, including specific focus on Libya and Syria Increased debate on the question of US decline and the rise of China. A timeline to give increased context to those studying the topic for the first time. A fully revised companion website including links to further resources and self-testing material can be found at www.routledge.com/cw/best Antony Best is Associate Professor in International History at the London School of Economics.

  1. en pedagogisk bok
    Jelly, 22 februari 2016

    En viktigt och pedagogisk lagd bok, som förklarar händelser och ord med både förklaringar och tidslinjer i varje kapitel. Det underlättade något enormt när man läste boken och gjorde att man samtidigt som man läste om en händelse kunde ha fågelperspektiv och grodperspektiv till händelsen i fråga. Historiskt skildrar den 1900-talet men inte med det traditionella fokuset utan bringar samtida konflikters rötter till förfogande, vilket ger läsaren i fråga en förståelse för både samtiden och historien!
