International Relations Since the Peace Treaties

£19.99

Product description

The first edition of this book appeared in 1937, and provided an authoritative and comprehensive overview of international relations as they developed after the Great War. In this second edition, the author, then the Woodrow Wilson Professor of International Politics in the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, added further chapters dealing with events up to March 1940.

Edward Hallett "Ted" Carr CBE (1892-1982) was an English historian, diplomat, journalist and international relations theorist, and an opponent of empiricism within historiography. He was best known for his 14-volume history of the Soviet Union (an account of Soviet history from 1917 to 1929), for his writings on international relations, particularly" The Twenty Years' Crisis", and for his book "What Is History?", in which he laid out historiographic principles rejecting traditional historical methods and practices.

Our copy of the book shows the usual signs of age and use, having no dust jacket, and with browning to the spine and edges of the boards. Bound in green cloth, with black titles etc on the front and spine, it is nonetheless still firmly bound, and shows only minimal signs of use (slightly bumped corners, some shelf wear to top & bottom of spine). One small dark stain on the long edge of the book block, and a few small ink underlinings on the pages of the 'Introduction' are the only blemishes. It has additional interest, however, in having been owned by Victoria Brittain, whose bold ink-written signature adorns the front free endpaper (see photo). A well-known journalist, Ms. Brittain is an authority on the 'war on terror', and has written both books and plays dealing with the subject.
