PUBLISHERPantheon Books
CITYNew York, NY

This book examines how United States foreign policy was influenced by the events of World War II. It provides a detailed examination of the war years and the significance of the battles fought. A description of the succession of World War II events helps the reader understand conditions in the post-war period. The author argues that the chaos that emerged from World War II sparked political and social change worldwide. He depicts the war’s devastating effects on many countries, and examines the forces that shaped global politics. Included in the discussion are three themes that emerged and affected one another during and after World War II: revolutionary movements, the American conflict with the former Soviet Union, and the relationship between Great Britain and the United States.
