A Companion to International History 1900 – 2001

A Companion to International History 1900-2001 offers a comprehensive overview of the most important international events, movements, and controversies of the twentieth century. Written by distinguished contributors, each of whom is a recognized authority in their field, this work goes beyond reporting on the century's events and extends its coverage into the varying interpretations of their consequences.

Beginning with an introductory section detailing the prevailing undertones of the century's history, this volume follows a chronological structure from the origins of the First World War to the formation of a globalized new world order. Additionally, it addresses a broad range of topics, including the diplomacy of wartime and peacemaking, the Cold War era, the end of European empires, the rise of nationalism in the Third World, globalization, and terrorism. The inclusion of useful guides and suggestions for further readings makes A Companion to International History an indispensable tool for scholars and students alike.
