The Major International Treaties of the Twentieth Century
A History and Guide with Texts
The Major International Treaties of the Twentieth Century surveys the history of treaty-making throughout the twentieth century. It accessibly provides the texts of all the major treaties that either continue in force today, or are of historical importance. These treaties are essential for an understanding of recent history and analysis of current international relations.
The Major International Treaties of the Twentieth Century is truly global in scope and covers treaties of all aspects, from political and economic agreements to environmental and human rights pacts. From the great many treaties set out and discussed, examples include:
* the Treaty of Versailles, 1919
* the Pact of Steel, 1939
* the Charter of the United Nations, 1945
* the North Atlantic Treaty, 1949
* the Treaty between the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic, 1990
* the Belfast Agreement, 1998
* the Charter of the Organisation of African Unity, 1963
* the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948.
Drawing on the previous volumes of their books on major international treaties, the authors bring the picture up to date in this definitive work with the events of the 1980s and the 1990s, many of which have rendered earlier treaties redundant. This is an invaluable resource for all those interested in modern history, politics and international relations.
