Our understanding of the origins of the Second World War has been transformed in recent decades. The opening of the archives of the major combatant powers, together with the reorientation of international history itself away from a narrow preoccupation with diplomacy, have resulted in a more rounded conception of war, embracing also the study of economics, strategy, propaganda, and intelligence. This volume provides a clear and accessible guide to these changes, and to the current state of debate.
Section 1: Interpretation and debates
Section 2: Germany, Italy, the USSR and Japan: dictatorships and revisionism
Section 3: Great Britain, France and the United States: democracies at bay
Section 4: Beyond diplomacy: economics, strategy and opinion
