Summary
"Edited by Matthew Hilton and Rana Miller, this collection shifts attention away from the west to the non-western world, providing a forum for new voices from China, India, Kenya, and re-emergent societies in Eastern Europe. Exploiting newly opened archives and newly recorded oral history, the transnational histories in this volume see 1945 as the centre of a transitional period in which ideas and institutions endured. Exploring international institutions that tackled hunger and legal rights alongside ideas about global social welfare, they show that transnational processes could provide liberation in ways that the nation-state could not enable, but that they could also create a new and oppressive kind of imperialism. The essays here propose innovative and sometimes provocative approaches toward the transnational history of the mid-twentieth century, challenging the geography, the chronology, and the processes, of an interconnected global history"--provided by publisher
