The Post-Imperial Age looks at the impact on the wider world of the end of the European empires and their replacement by a new order dominated by East - West rivalries. Begins by looking at decolonization and goes on to discuss the different patterns of experience in South Africa, South East Asia and India, East Asia and the Pacific, the Middle East, and the Americans. It concludes with a sustained account of the International system - the functioning of international organisations and the global role of money and trade. Key Features: offers a clearly written account of the often technical (and therefore usually, avoided) subject of the development of money and trade within the Western World, and its implications for the international distribution of power. Readable and fluent the book contains a mass of information, but the reader never feels he/she is being force-fed; almost 50 years of postwar history are covered, so up to date events can be set in a surprisingly long historical context, to aid our understanding of what lies behind today's headline; includes a useful guide for further reading. Readership: Undergraduate and postgraduate students of contemporary World History, International Relations and Politics, as well as students of Further Education, some A Level students and the general reader with an interest in the subject.
