This new edition includes a brand new chapter dedicated to issues between major powers and local conflicts post-2001, a thoroughly updated assessment of the spread of nuclear weapons, and extensive new coverage of economic relations with particular reference to the changing role of Asia. "North, South, East, West" remains essential reading for all students of international relations, world politics and international history.
