Through its lively and accessible narrative, The World Transformed: 1945 to Present provides students with an account of the political, socio-economic, and cultural developments that have shaped global events since 1945. The book's focus on three central and profoundly interconnected stories--the unfolding of the Cold War, the growth of the international economy, and the developing world's quest for political and economic independence--offers students a framework for understanding the past and making sense of the present. Attentive to overarching themes, individual historical figures, and diverse nations--and now substantially revised with a new Part 4 that examines world events since 1990--The World Transformed, Second Edition, is ideal for courses on post-1945 world history, international relations, or global topics.

About the Author:


Michael H. Hunt is the Everett H. Emerson Professor of History Emeritus at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the author or editor of twelve books, including The World Transformed, 1945 to the Present: A Documentary Reader, Second Edition (OUP, 2014) and Ideology and U.S. Foreign Policy, Second Edition (2009). He is also the coauthor, with Steven I. Levine, of Arc of Empire: America's Wars in Asia from the Philippines to Vietnam (2012).

Review:


"It is difficult to imagine a better history of the world from 1945 to the present than the new edition of Michael Hunt's The World Transformed. Having added chapters that cover the post-Cold War decades, Hunt provides a remarkably informed, balanced, and nuanced exploration of an era of unprecedented globalization. His capacious narrative is attentive to both the upside and perils of ever accelerating transnational and cross-cultural connections and is replete with vignettes that underscore human agency. The World Transformed is the most compelling and thought-provoking assessment available on the tumultuous quarter-century from the end of World War II through the present day."--Michael Adas, Rutgers University


"The second edition of Michael Hunt's The World Transformed is the most comprehensive and up-to-date historical survey of the post-1945 period. While the overall structure and approach remain broadly similar to the first edition, new chapters, revisions, and features add substantially to the book's interpretive power. Of particular importance are the additions of two new chapters on the post-1990 period, which offer detailed coverage of the last quarter-century. In addition, thoroughly revised recommended resources at the end of each chapter will allow students to pursue the most recent research on a wide variety of subjects. It is a terrific narrative and analysis for any course focusing on the post-1945 period."--Heather Streets-Salter, Northeastern University
