Summary The end of the Cold War, which was in many ways the great simplifier of international affairs, has fundamentally changed the character of world politics and introduced dangerous new developments and processes. This new world disorder is fully reflected in this new Penguin dictionary. Providing a comprehensive overview of contemporary international relations, it contains over 700 definitions including entries relating to ideas, theories, concepts, organizations and events e.g. crisis management, preventative diplomacy, failed nation-states, World Bank group, Camp David accords; specialist terms e.g. Agent-structure, Neo-realism, mixed actor model, zero-sum; and terms for developments that have greatly affected international relations in the post-Cold War period e.g. Big emerging markets (BEMs), Critical Theory/Postmodernism, ethnic cleansing, non-offensive defence.
