"First published in 1968, World Politics since 1945 is a classic and authoritative study of contemporary political history that has helped to divert, educate, and inform two generations of political scientists, historians and general readers. The ninth edition has been expanded and updated to take into account the developments of the last 10 years, including the ugly incursions of global terrorism; the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Sudan; the accelerating emergence of India and China as major powers; the major political developments in Latin America; the march of globalisation; the expansion eastwards of the European Union; instability in the Middle East; and the vexed question of oil and energy supplies." "The book has long been a staple of bookshelves and reading lists across the world, and provides a reliable and interconnected account of the great sweeps of contemporary history. Marked throughout by Calvocoressi's characteristic erudition and elegance, it will continue to be essential reading for students of international politics and for all of those who simply wish to understand better the path the world has taken since the end of the Second World War."--Jacket

Total war; the story of World War II by Peter Calvocoressi( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the millions who lived through World War II on home or battle front, the realization alone that more than fifty years have passed since the war's beginningis startling, but to the postwar generation, this century's great war has remained singularly remote. TOTAL WAR is its first comprehensive history. Drawing on remembrance, personal experience, and a distinquished record of scholarship and journalism, the authors have skillfully sifted a massive body of accumulated fact and conflicting interpretation to sketch the background to the war, describe its military progress and political momentum, and examine its often surprising consequences. It was a war of civilians, of ideology, and of technology, as much as of military strength or economic resources, and important sections of TOTAL WAR deal with the international politics that shaped basic war aims, with the human drama that grew out of personal commitments to resistance or collaboration, and with the broader social and scientific changes which were wrought by or in spite of the war
