About This Book

This book takes an original look at the history and development of relations between major countries in the international community and examines how these relations have been affected by successive wars and changes in the global political economy. The author argues that the rise of the English-speaking West has created rivalries between contender states that have never been put to rest, and with each round of Western expansion, new rivalries are created. From Europe and America to China, the Middle East, Latin America and Russia, the author explores the development of international relations post-World War II and questions whether the neoliberal project and its human rights ideology have collapsed back into authoritarianism under the guise of the "war on terror".
