Product description


The literature on international history since 1945 has become so vast and elaborate during the past decades that we badly need a compact survey of the kind that Philip Bell and Mark Gilbert provide. This consistently reliable and highly readable book will help readers to understand the main events that shaped the world we live in today. (Kiran Klaus Patel, Maastricht University, the Netherlands)

The authors of the second edition of The World since 1945 have done readers a great service. Out of the complicated history of our times, they have produced an impressively streamlined and accessible account. It is recommended for anyone wishing to understand more about the forces that produced today's world. (Mary Elise Sarotte, University of Southern California Dornsife, USA)

There could be no better person than Mark Gilbert to help revise and bring up to date Philip Bell's classic account of post-1945 international history. The book's elegance of style, thematic coherence and mastery of the issues are all maintained, making it an essential purchase for students and specialists alike. (Christopher Hill, University of Cambridge, UK)
