This concise perspective on 20th-century world history covers science and technology, economics, political and social developments, international relations and culture. The work is intended as a core book; it includes thorough attention to pre-1914 history and features excerpts from the diaries and autobiographies of prominent figures, such as Churchill, Hitler, Gandhi, Kruschev and Mao, to personalize ideas and events. The fourth edition reflects recent world changes: the break-up of the Soviet Union, the reunification of Germany and the resurgence of nationalism. It also includes two chapters on post-1945 Middle East and a new postscript to a changing century. An instructor's manual for the text (0-07-023492-2) is also available.
