"The Twentieth Century World" is a narrative account of twentieth century world history, with a distinctive analytical framework that focuses on the rivalries between major world nations. For this Canadian edition, we have streamlined the writing style to make it more accessible to first year students; improved the pedagogy; moderated the US - centered point of view; and where appropriate, added Canadian material and perspectives. Keylor is a highly respected author, known for the accuracy of his work. Building on this core strength with sound pedagogy, clear writing, and new Canadian content, we believe that our text will be far better suited to this market than its US competitor.

Jerry Bannister is at Dalhousie University.Review:
"The fourth edition of The Twentieth-Century World is a remarkable accomplishment. Eloquently written and global in coverage, it represents the best example of the new international history. Integrating the economic, strategic, political, ideological, historical, and cultural elements of contemporary world politics, Keylor's analyses of people and institutions, and of short- and long-term phenomena, are both lucid and wise."--Carole Fink, The Ohio State University
Praise for the previous edition
"The best single text on international relations in our tumultuous century available on the market today. The author offers comprehensive coverage and provides balanced judgments. He grounds his work solidly in the best historical methodology, evincing sensitivity to the contributions of allied disciplines. The writing is clear and felicitous. The new Third Edition will continue to hold pride of place as the obvious starting point for advanced undergraduate and graduate students who wish to explore the background to the contemporary world."--Stephen A. Schuker, William W. Corcoran Professor of History, University of Virginia
"A fine survey--wonderfully balanced and comprehensive!"--Ernest May, Harvard University
"There may be certain rivals to The Twentieth Century World in bookshops and libraries, but there is nothing superior to it....The style is pleasing and extremely lucid, and the emphasis on economic and geopolitical trends is greatly to be welcomed....An excellent synthetic work, and one which can be recommended to students and to interested laymen alike."--Paul Kennedy, Yale University
