Products Included

A Political and Diplomatic History of the Modern World: The Cold War  (ISBN-10: 1680483501 | ISBN-13: 9781680483505)

Immediately following World War II, former allies the United States and the Soviet Union began an open yet restricted rivalry that became known as the Cold War and played out around the world until the Soviet Unions collapse in 1991. Many conflicts, such as the Chinese Civil War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Arab-Israeli wars, acted as proxy wars for the U.S.-Soviet competition. Other major issues explored in this examination of the Cold War include Europe's Iron Curtain, the nuclear arms race, decolonization in Africa, and the spread of communism into Latin America and Southeast Asia.

A Political and Diplomatic History of the Modern World: The Post–Cold War World  (ISBN-10: 1680483498 | ISBN-13: 9781680483499)

The post-Cold War era began with a decade of conflicts often mediated by the United States as the world's only remaining superpower. The September 11th terrorist attacks, however, marked the dawning of a new era. The United States became preoccupied by the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, while around the world, new challenges and threats emerged: a more assertive Russia, an increasingly powerful China, dangerous terrorism organizations, and a refugee crisis in the Middle East and Europe. This volume tells the story of this fraught era with great insight and a sure understanding of the complex interplay of action and reaction that characterized the proliferation of conflicts at the turn of the 21st century.
