A single-volume reference to answer all your questions about history's most complex century.
The 20th century was a time of massive political upheaval and rapid transition that included the Age of Imperialism, Lenin, the First World War, the rise of Hitler, the Second World War, decolonization, the founding of the United Nations, the collapse of Communism, and the Gulf Wars.
The Collins Atlas of 20th Century History provides a new approach to understanding the century's major developments, from the height of the Imperial Age to the challenges of the post-Cold War era. Here is a visual presentation of an incredibly eventful 100 years, a tour through ten decades of conflict, hope, and innovation. Maps and graphics trace the rise and fall of empires and dictatorships, the hope for democracy, and the social and political change around the world.
For anyone with an interest in the history, society, politics, warfare, and culture of the world, the Collins Atlas of 20th Century History is a perfect companion.
