The World Transformed, 1945 to the Present

A Documentary Reader

Second Edition

Michael H. Hunt

Oxford University Press is pleased to be the new publisher of the bestselling anthology The World Transformed, 1945 to the Present: A Documentary Reader, Second Edition. Edited by Michael H. Hunt, this collection invites students to interpret and evaluate 180 documents organized into forty topical sections ranging over the last seven decades and virtually the entire globe. It serves as an ideal companion volume to Hunt's text, A World Transformed: 1945 to the Present, but can also be used as a stand-alone reader in a variety of courses in history, international relations, and global studies.

New to this Edition:

  • A new Ch. 11 explores regional diversity in the new century
  • A thoroughly reworked and restructured Ch. 10 now focuses exclusively on the effects of globalization that became apparent in the 1990s
  • An expanded Ch. 9 now includes a section on apartheid in South Africa
  • More visual evidence--posters and cartoons and selections from handbills and pamphlets--appears alongside conventional textual documents
