Through its lively and accessible narrative, The World Transformed provides students with an account of the political, socio-economic and cultural developments that have shaped global events since 1945. The volume'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, The World Transformed will find an enthusiastic reception in courses on post-1945 world history, international relations, or global concerns.

MICHAEL H. HUNT, Emerson Professor of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, writes and teaches in the general field of international and global history. He is the author of numerous articles and prize-winning books on topics spanning the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Topics in Chinese as well as U.S. history informed his early publications, while later writings, notably Ideology and U.S. Foreign Policy (1987) and Lyndon Johnson's War: America's Cold War Crusade in Vietnam, 1945-1968 (1996), focused on the role of ideas in foreign relations and on the Cold War in Asia. These were written with research support from such major sources as the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, the National Program for Advanced Study and Research in China, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Hunt has played a leading role in the global history program within his department at Chapel Hill.
