Ebbing of European Ascendancy by Sally Marks
Book DescriptionIn a space of little over 30 years, the world was transformed. The European great powers were no longer ascendant, even if that was not yet fully revealed to them, and the US, a regional power as of 1914, now belonged to the wholly new category of "superpower." What happened in this short period to work such a dramatic change? The answer lies neither in Europe alone nor in the West more broadly, and one of the virtues of this bold new international history of the period that Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America are allowed to play their parts. It treats the Asian and European crises and wars of 1931-45, for example, as a single interlocking whole, as world leaders at the time were forced to do. It also acknowledges to an unusual degree the importance of imperial and economic circumstances in framing the policies of states towards one another.

Paul Hymans, Hardback (February 2010)
Paul Hymans was the champion of the small states in the League of Nations Commission at the Paris Peace Conference and was rewarded by becoming the League's first president. He thereby brought about Belgium's transition from the status of sheltered child to full participation in much great-power diplomacy.
