Book Description

The World Today (1974) examines the world of the late twentieth century and its roots – the disintegration of the old world is analysed in the expansion and subsequent decline of nineteenth-century imperialism, and the attempts by the League of Nations and United Nations to bring about a new order on international cooperation.
