Overview

The first edition, published in 1978, is cited in Guide to Reference Books. Alexander De Conde speaks for the three editors-in- chief (whose affiliations are not cited) in a preface describing the thinking behind this reference: its aim is to provide in-depth, original, interpretive essays—longer than magazine articles but shorter than monographs—commissioned from experts in the field. Rather than give full narrative histories, these essays explain concepts and large ideas; they are intended for students and others—high school sophistication and above—for use as supplements to traditional accounts available elsewhere. A brief sampling of topics: balance of power, Cold War evolution and interpretations, covert operations, humanitarian intervention and relief, International Monetary Fund and World Bank, nuclear strategy and diplomacy, oil, pan-Americanism, presidential power, propaganda. Arranged alphabetically, 120-plus articles (48 new; the rest considerably revamped) are presented in three volumes; indexing is in the third. Each article has a bibliography and is cross-referenced.
