"A fresh synthesis. This work incorporates the significant findings of the historical scholarship that has and is revising long-held previous interpretations. Rather than a discursive and disjointed account, it is a comprehensive, brilliantly coherent, insightful and fluent international history. A remarkable achievement." - Jon Jacobson, Professor of History Emeritus, University of California, Irvine
"This highly original and readable account of Great Power imperial rivalries reveals lines of continuity and change not often addressed in books of more limited scope. D'Agostino's central thesis provides fresh insights into the course of both World Wars as well as their aftermath." -Dr Zara Steiner, Emeritus Fellow, Murray Edwards College, Cambridge
"Drawing on an impressive range of sources, Anthony D'Agostino analyzes the collapse of the European balance of power and the emergence of a new world order in the era of the two world wars. The book is all the more timely now that the era of superpowers, whose rise he describes so well, seems to be coming to an end." -Professor David Kaiser, William B. Pratt Chair of Military History, US Naval War College
"A fascinating new approach to the international politics of the interwar era that will be of enduring value to both students and scholars alike." -Professor Geoffrey Roberts, University College Cork
"The Rise of Global Powers may become an influential work for scholars interested in the diplomacy of the twentieth century on its own merits, as well as researchers interested in the theoretical implications of modern international history." -Joshua Shifrinson, H-Diplo
"Anthony D'Agostino's new book is a genuinely new and exciting take on the history of international relations in the first half of the twentieth century, and will be a very satisfying read for those calling for the discipline to finally overcome its Eurocentric perspective." -Jan Martin Lemnitzer, RUSI Journal
This is a study of the expansionism of the great powers during an era encompassing two world wars, the Great Depression and the Russian and Chinese revolutions. The book's global approach to diplomatic history takes in economic and social material, and suggests a new kind of world history.
