About the Author:

J.A.S. Grenville is Professor of Modern History, Emeritus at the University of Birmingham. He is the author of a number of books, including Europe Reshaped, 1848-1878 (1999) and is co-editor of The Major International Treaties of the Twentieth Century: A History and Guide with Texts (2000).

Review:

"Follows a relatively new trend among historians to abandon their sometimes narrow parochialism in favour of 'world history' his volume deals with more thematic issues like industrialization, the empowerment of women, the rise of environmental concerns and multinational corporations." - Foreign Affairs

"Magnificently detailed, brilliantly written...An extraordinarily readable global history." - Parade Magazine
