War and Peace: International Relations, 1914-45 (Access to History)

by D . G . Williamson (Author)


This account of the complexities of international history between 1914 and 1945 focuses on the inter-war period, although it also covers international diplomacy during the two World Wars. Besides analyzing the negotiation and execution of the peace treaties of 1919-1920 and the drift towards war in the 1930s, this volume also examines the history of the League of Nations, the diplomacy of the Locarno Treaties and the international impact of Japanese expansion in the Far East. Features include: summary diagrams; advice for students on note-taking and examination skills; chapters on the League of Nations and the Manchurian and Abyssinian crises; the historiography of this topic, with an examination of the work of leading historians; and a final chapter considers the similarities and differences in the arrangements made at the end of the two World Wars. David Williamson is the author of "The Third Reich" and "Bismarck and Germany".
