An enormously successful, comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of world history since the end of the Second World War.  The 8th and last ever edition of Calvocoressi's World Politics, is fully updated to provide a complete guide to the second half of the 20th Century.  Since the first edition in 1968, World Politics has established itself as a vital text for anyone involved in international politics or history. As world events happened, Calvocoressi added more and more to his book to maintain its status as a current and complete source. It is the only single volume book to give full international coverage and to be written in clear, succint and accessibly writing style.
