The third edition of this highly successful narrative account of international history in the 20th century has been substantially revised and updated to cover such recent events as the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the emergence of the non-Russion successor states, the civil war in Bosnia, the advent of Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, the progress of European integration since Maastricht, and the progress toward the North American free-trade system (NAFTA). All the additional material is integrated into Keylor's distinctive analytical framework of the relations among the major nations of the world. Extensive treatment is also devoted to Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. Eighteen new maps and several new tables have been added, along with an updated bibliographic essay.
