Una ricostruzione unitaria degli eventi che hanno radicalmente modificato i caratteri del sistema internazionale tra il 1946 e il 1990: nel secondo dopoguerra il sistema occidentale si riorganizza e progredisce grazie al Piano Marshall, mentre quello sovietico si chiude in un isolamento autarchico centralizzato. Si formano due blocchi contrapposti: los angeles competizione bipolare conosce momenti di stasi ma anche giorni di profonde tensioni. Dall'Europa il conflitto si estende ai paesi di recente indipendenza e alla Cina. In una gara sempre più serrata, l. a. tecnologia varata negli Stati Uniti e los angeles capacità di affrontare meglio i problemi della globalizzazione spingono verso l. a. crisi e infine alla dissoluzione dell'Unione Sovietica.
