9780195337570: A World of Nations: The International Order Since 1945

Now updated to address recent developments in the post-9/11 world, A World of Nations, Second Edition, provides an analytical narrative of the origins, evolution, and end of the Cold War. Much more than a simple account of the long struggle between the two superpowers, this vibrant text opens with chapters exploring the development of regional conflicts--ethnic, religious, cultural, economic, and military--that dominated international relations until the breakup of the Soviet Union. The final chapters examine the war on terror and the salience of interstate and transnational conflicts in the era of globalization. In engaging, compelling language, author William R. Keylor provides a genuinely international history of this turbulent period.

Designed to serve the needs of both political scientists and historians, the new edition has been reorganized along regional lines while still maintaining the chronological approach of the previous edition. Building on its historical foundation, the second edition discusses International Relation theory and explores such timely critical topics as human rights, environmental issues, NGOs, immigration, and international terrorism. In addition, numerous new photographs and helpful maps animate the text, drawing students into this dynamic subject.

Thoroughly revised and even more relevant in its second edition, A World of Nations offers a riveting exploration of international relations as they have evolved from the Second World War to the present. It is ideal for political science courses on international relations, as well as courses on the history of U.S. foreign policy, European diplomatic history, the history of international relations, and world history since 1945.

Review:


"A remarkable book . . . Anyone who wants to understand the history of the world we now live in has to begin somewhere, and there is no better or more up-to-date place to start than with this book."--Marc Trachtenberg, UCLA


"Keylor's new text on the post-1945 world elegantly and succinctly captures the rapidly changing character of the international system of the Cold War period and beyond."--Norman M. Naimark, Stanford University


"William Keylor has written an impressive, panoramic study of the international order since 1945 that surpasses other accounts in terms of depth, analytical richness, and finely-crafted regional histories . . . its sheer scope is breathtaking."--Nathan Citino, Colorado State University


"William Keylor makes international diplomatic history a pleasure to read. He writes with grace and style, but best of all, he synthesizes a complex fifty years into a comprehensive and comprehensible framework. This will become the standard text for the period."--Robert Art, Brandeis University
