The “non-aligned movement” was a unique phenomenon in the history of decolonization, of South-South cooperation, of the Cold War, and of the North-South conflict. Several Asian, African, and Latin American nations banded together to add additional weight to their common interests. Jürgen Dinkel analyzes the history of the entire movement as a response by the “global South” to the transformation of international relations in the 20th century.

The emergence of China as a dominant regional power with global influence is a significant phenomenon in the twenty-first century. Its origin could be traced back to 1949 when the Chinese Communist Party under Mao Zedong came to power and vowed to transform China and the world. After the ‘century of humiliation’, China was in constant search of a new identity on the world stage. From alliance with the Soviet Union in the 1950s, China normalized relations with America in the 1970s and embraced the global economy and the international community since the 1980s. This book examines China’s changing relations with the two superpowers, Asian neighbours, Third World countries, and European powers. China and the World since 1945 offers an overview of China’s involvement in the Korean War, the Sino-Soviet split, Sino-American rapprochement, the end of the Cold War, and globalization. It assess the roles of security, ideology, and domestic politics in Chinese foreign policy and provides a synthesis of the latest archival-based research on China’s diplomatic history and Cold War international history This engaging new study examines the rise of China from a long-term historical perspective and will be essential to students of Chinese history and contemporary international relations.

«Weltgeschichte ist lange Zeit als eine Geschichte des Aufstiegs und Niedergangs einer kleinen Zahl von ‚Hochkulturen’ geschrieben worden. Unter diesen Kulturen schienen Europa oder der atlantische ‚Westen’ während der letzten Jahrhunderte nach den Kriterien Macht, Wohlstand und kulturelle Kreativität zu dominieren. Das neue sechsbändige Werk zur Weltgeschichte, das von einem Team von Historikerinnen und Historikern vorwiegend aus den USA und Deutschland erarbeitet wird und das gleichzeitig bei C.H.Beck und Harvard University Press erscheint, verabschiedet sich von diesen Traditionen. Es leugnet die Errungenschaften des Westens nicht, stellt sie aber in den größeren Zusammenhang gleichzeitiger Entwicklungen in anderen Teilen der Welt. Dadurch wird das allmähliche, dabei aber krisenhafte Entstehen des heutigen dicht integrierten und pluralistischen Weltzusammenhangs sichtbar. Erstmals werden in diesen Bänden die Ergebnisse von mehreren Jahrzehnten internationaler Forschung zur Vorgeschichte der Globalisierung und zur Entwicklung von Gesellschaften und politischen Ordnungen auf allen Kontinenten von führenden Experten zusammenfassend dargestellt. Weltgeschichte erscheint hier nicht als Aneinanderreihung einzelner Spezialgeschichten. Die Aufmerksamkeit richtet sich auf bisher wenig beachtete Querbeziehungen und Wechselwirkungen: auf Migrationen von Einzelnen und Gruppen und die Gründung neuer Gesellschaften, auf die interkontinentale Ausbreitung von Technologien, Religionen oder politischen Ideen, auf globale Kommunikationsnetze, Handelsströme und Konsummuster, auf Imperialismus, Kolonialismus und großräumige Kriege.» Akira Iriye und Jürgen Osterhammel Die Weltpolitik im Zeichen des Kalten Krieges, die ökonomische Globalisierung, der dramatische Wandel der Erde mit einer Verdoppelung und dann Verdreifachung der Weltbevölkerung innerhalb weniger Jahrzehnte sowie einer explosionsartigen Zunahme aller Arten von Umweltbelastungen bis hin zur Klimaerwärmung und Reaktorkatastrophen, die Herausbildung einer globalen Kulturgemeinschaft bei gleichzeitiger, teilweise offensiv behaupteter Diversität – all diese Megatrends der Weltgeschichte seit 1945 sind Gegenstand dieses neuen Bandes der «Geschichte der Welt». «Was für ein Meilenstein: Einige der besten Historiker schreiben eine Geschichte der Welt.» «Intellektuell so anregend wie kaum eine weitere gegenwärtige Arbeit der Geschichtswissenschaft.» Jacques Schuster, Die Welt
