Paperback. 928 pages. Dimensions: 9.4in. x 6.1in. x 1.2in.A magisterial account of our time by a distinguished historian. Walter LaFeber, prize-winning author of The Clash Global change has accelerated at an unprecedented pace in the last half-century. The trajectory of change points in different directions, with the world growing at once more interconnected and more fragmented. Commerce and migrations, television and the World Wide Web suggest a story of growing interconnection, while at the same time the proliferation of nation-states and the divisions rooted in religion, race, and material inequality tell of separation and conflict. David Reynoldss brilliant history captures both themes and grounds them vividly in the people and events of the last fifty years. Reynolds captures the great political events: the Cold War, the Chinese revolution, independence movements, Vietnam, and the fall of the Soviet Union, and broader developments: economic and population growth, the spread of cities, vast technological change, genetic manipulation, and the creation of a digital world. Carefully avoiding an encyclopedic approach, Reynolds integrates these themes into a narrative with authority, vision, and style.

Synopsis: This history of the world since 1945 captures the ground-level drama of events and the larger contours of change in a period of global transformation. Global change accelerated at an unprecedented rate in the last half of the 20th century, affecting evey aspect of daily life, public and private, throughout the world. The trajectory of change points in different directions, with the world growing at once more connected and more fragmented. Commerce and migrations, television and the World Wide Web, suggest a story of growing interconnnection. The proliferation of nation-states, the divisions rooted in religion, race, and material inequality, tell one of separation and conflict. This history captures both themes and grounds them in the people and events of the last fifty years of the 20th century. Kennedy and Kruschev, Mao and Mobutu, Rachel Carson, Indira Gandhi and Elvis all come to life.

Product Description: The second half of the twentieth century was dominated by the unfolding drama of the Cold War, from the Berlin blockade to the fall of the Berlin Wall. A booming global economy has had its sinister shadow in the apparently insoluble crises that havebeset much of the Third World. Above all, peace in the West has been offset by wars of unbelievable murderousness elsewhere. Reynolds' account is both an overview of the trends underlying this spectacular and awful variety, and an insight into the lives led in its midst.
