The twentieth-century world : an international history by William R Keylor( Book )

66 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and held by 2,477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This classic account of world history since 1914, set within an analytical framework of the rivalry among the major nations for control of the world's resources, territories, and populations, is now revised and updated to cover important recent developments such as the reduction of East-West rivalry in the Third World, the collapse of the Soviet satellite system in Eastern Europe, the reunification of Germany, the political and economic crisis in the USSR, and the Persian Gulf War. Incorporating the most current scholarship, Keylor shows the interdependence of the military, political, and economic structures of the various regions of the world, provides an incisive analysis of the impact of technological innovations on the nuclear arms race, and devotes considerable attention to international economic relations, including trade patterns, capital flows, and foreign investment. Three new chapters explore the evolving international positions of Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East."--Jacket
A world of nations : the international order since 1945 by William R Keylor( Book )

This book provides an analytical narrative of the origins, evolution, and end of the Cold War. The book traces the development of regional conflicts-ethnic, religious, cultural, economic, and military-throughout the world. Its underlying theme is the continuing salience of inter-state conflicts in the era of globalization, despite the emergence of transnational actors and widespread predictions of the demise of the nation-state.

Academy and community : the foundation of the French historical profession by William R Keylor( Book )

11 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most informed observers would agree that an inordinate proportion of the most exciting, innovative, and ground-breaking work in the field of historical scholarship since the First World War has taken place in the French university system. In this book Keylor describes the establishment of history as an academic discipline in France between 1870 and 1914 and the formation of the "scientific" school of historical writing in the French university system. In a lucid study the author explains the complex process by which the new discipline of history was organized, furnished with a set of professional goals, and provided with the theoretical and institutional means of achieving them. Keylor discusses the multifarious problems that confronted the university historians as they sought to transform their craft from an avocation of amateurs into a scholarly discipline pursued by trained specialists employed by the university system: the growing tensions between the universitaires and the literary historians outside the academy; the conflict between the "scientific" claims of the French historical school and its commitment to employ history for patriotic and political ends; and the interdisciplinary rivalries between academic history and the fledgling discipline of sociology
