9780195168433: The Twentieth-Century World and Beyond: An International History since 1900

The Twentieth-Century World and Beyond: An International History Since 1900, Fifth Edition, explores the history of modern relations between the U.S., Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The book's unique analytical framework--which focuses on the relationships between these countries rather than on their individual histories--helps readers to easily examine how the nations of the world have interacted since the beginning of the last century. Extensively revised in this fifth edition, The Twentieth-Century World and Beyond reflects the latest scholarship and also features photographs for the first time--more than fifty throughout the text. The new edition addresses such issues as refugees and stateless persons, human rights, the environment, and the events of September 11, 2001. Updated to include the war on terrorism, military action in Iraq, and the causes and consequences of globalization, this edition also explores the expanding role of nongovernmental organizations, the threat of AIDS to world order, narcotics trafficking, and environmental degradation. Examining a wide range of countries, The Twentieth-Century World and Beyond, Fifth Edition, is ideal for undergraduate and graduate courses in twentieth-century international history, twentieth-century world history, and international relations.

About the Author:

William R. Keylor, Professor of History and International Relatons, Boston University.

Review:


"[Keylor's] treatment of the second 30 years' war is crisp, concise and authoritative. He covers a vast range of material, and manages to present a cogent narrative of great clarity. He wears his learning lightly, but there is no doubt about the learning that lies behind the text. It is a formidable achievement. ... I rarely use textbooks, but will make an exception for this one." --Jay Winter, Charles J. Stille Professor of History, Yale University


"I consider this an outstanding textbook, surveying the development of twentieth century international affairs in great detail. The author's lucid style makes even the most complicated diplomatic issues comprehensible."--Akira Iriye, Harvard University


"Blends broad coverage with consistent and clear argumentation. Rather than simply narrating the course of the twentieth century, Keylor shows how economic and strategic considerations drove conflict and peacemaking in different contexts."--Jeremi Suri, University of Wisconsin-Madison


Praise for previous editions


"A remarkable accomplishment. Eloquently written and global in coverage, it represents the best example of the new international history. Integrating the economic, strategic, political, ideological, historical, and cultural elements of contemporary world politics, Keylor's analyses of people and institutions, and of short- and long-term phenomena, are both lucid and wise."--Carole Fink, The Ohio State University


"The best single text on international relations in our tumultuous century available on the market today. The author offers comprehensive coverage and provides balanced judgments. He grounds his work solidly in the best historical methodology, evincing sensitivity to the contributions of allied disciplines. The writing is clear and felicitous."--Stephen A. Schuker, University of Virginia


"A fine survey--wonderfully balanced and comprehensive!"--Ernest May, Harvard University


"There may be certain rivals to The Twentieth-Century World in bookshops and libraries, but there is nothing superior to it....The style is pleasing and extremely lucid, and the emphasis on economic and geopolitical trends is greatly to be welcomed....An excellent synthetic work, and one which can be recommended to students and to interested laymen alike."--Paul Kennedy, Yale University
