Description

Long regarded as standard work, this book is warmly commended to all who wish to understand the modern political world.

This fifth edition deals with major developments such as the economic post-war recovery and prosperity of France, Italy and Germany, Russia’s built-up of military and political power; changes in the Indian sub-continent and the creation of Bangladesh; the continuing transformation of Africa into self-governing units; the Cultural Revolution in China and her maneuvering with Russia for strategic position in South-East and Central Asia.

The author also comments on the deepening depression and disillusionment in the USA in the sixties, the militant black movements, the space race to the moon, the Cuban crisis
and Vietnam war.
