In the decade between 1940 and 1950, the old world order collapsed, and a new one was created.  Old European empires-France, Germany and the United Kingdom-receded, replaced by two new superpowers-the Soviet Union and the United States. Beyond Europe, a swath of new countries was created. This era also produced some of the most remarkable statesmen of modern times, including Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin, Truman, de Gaulle, Nehru and Mao Tsetung; diplomats like George Marshall, Dean Acheson, Anthony Eden, Ernest Bevin and Robert Schuman; and international fixers, such as Averell Harriman, John Maynard Keynes and Jean Monnet. Their stories and experiences form the core fabric of this book. Crowder examines their shared ambition to rebuild the world in the aftermath of World War II and launch a second age of globalization.
Richard Crowder is an independent writer and historian. He studied at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and at Oxford University.
