Normal Price: GBP1000,00 Special pre-publication offer - Save GBP100.00 This eight volume set provides comprehensive coverage of the factors that determined the evolution of world system in the twentieth century. Volumes 1-4 examine the 20th century as a period of unprecedented turbulence, marked by unprecedented global confrontations. Volumes 5-8 explore what happened following the collapse of the bipolar order in 1989 and the implications of this transition for the conduct of international relations. Volume One looks at the causes and consequences of the collapse of the balance of power after 1914. Volume Two examines the emergence of the United States and its impact on international politics in a bipolar world. Volume Three consdiers the peaceful conclusion of the Cold War. Volume Four looks at the ways theorists of international relations conceptualized the post-Cold War unipolar `moment' under conditions of globalization. Volume Five traces the rise of the new Europe but explains the continuing weakness of Europe as an international actor. Volume Six examines the claim that the new 21st century is more likely to revolve around the Pacific than the United States or the Atlantic. Volume Seven asks the question: whatever happened to the Third Word? Volume Eight explores the possible sources of new challenges to international order following the brutal termination of the short-lived post-Cold War era on September 11, 2001. Together the Volumes combine to provide an unparalleled resource providing broad coverage of the subject with historical depth and contemporary relevance. The SAGE Library of International Relations is a new series of major works that will bring together the most influential and field-defining articles, both classical and contemporary, in a number of key areas of research and inquiry in International Relations. Each multi-volume set will represent a collection of the essential published works collated from the foremost publications in the field by an Editor or Editorial Team of renowned international stature. They will also include a full introduction, presenting a rationale for the selection and mapping out the discipline's past, present and likely future.
