From many perspectives, this collection illuminates such events and developments as the recognition of the economic and strategic importance of the Middle East, the development of the Cold War and Soviet expansionism, the problem of refugees and displaced persons, the various faces and responses to the end of colonialism in Africa, the economic and social stratification of Latin America, the "miracle" of Western Europe following the devastation and economic collapse of the immediate postwar period, and the application of the "domino theory" in Asia..
