'Sally Marks has rendered a great service to students and general readers alike in this incisive and insightful survey of global politics in the first half of the twentieth century. Her lively prose and shrewd judgements make it a most readable and valuable introduction to the themes of modern diplomacy, war and the relations between Europe and the wider world.' Gordon Martel, Professor of History, University of Northern British Columbia 'A most thoughtful and comprehensive analysis of how Europe's dominance of the globe dissolved in the twentieth century. Readers are carefully led through the thickets of war and diplomacy with due attention to economic and cultural factors and the perceptions - and misperceptions - of key actors as well as the public in Europe and around the world.' Gerhard L. Weinberg, Professor Emeritus, Universit 'An incisive and insightful survey of global politics in the first half of the twentieth century.' Educational Book Review 'This is a very useful introductory text, written in a lively style providing a thorough analysis of the erosion of European power in the first half of the twentieth century.' HistoryReseña del editor:
In a space of little over 30 years, the world was transformed. The European great powers were no longer ascendant, even if that was not yet fully revealed to them, and the US, a regional power as of 1914, now belonged to the wholly new category of "superpower." What happened in this short period to work such a dramatic change? The answer lies neither in Europe alone nor in the West more broadly, and one of the virtues of this bold new international history of the period that Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America are allowed to play their parts. It treats the Asian and European crises and wars of 1931-45, for example, as a single interlocking whole, as world leaders at the time were forced to do. It also acknowledges to an unusual degree the importance of imperial and economic circumstances in framing the policies of states towards one another.
