Conflict and Cooperation: Documents on Modern Global History, second edition, is a collection of primary documents for the study of twentieth- and twenty-first-century history. The twentieth century was profoundly shaped by war. We saw, for the first time in human history, the possibility of a war that could destroy all human life on earth. However, this was also the century that witnessed genuine attempts to build cooperative global institutions designed to prevent war, to facilitate international communication, and to improve the human condition. Conflict and cooperation are the defining themes that weave together this collection of primary documents. The readings have been selected with the goal of making twentieth-century history accessible to students for whom these events are increasingly distant. The second edition of Conflict and Cooperation significantly expands the documents presented. Most importantly, the collection now features key documents related to technology and the environment. As well, important documents on Latin America and on the Islamic world have been included. The primary documents allow readers to "witness" essential moments in history through the words of the men and women who participated in and experienced these events.

"More than passing attention is paid to the non-European world. The readings are edited to a useable length, in that they are long enough to convey a substantial argument, and short enough so that several could be assigned each week. The annotated lists of 'recommended reading' and 'recommended viewing' are rich and useful, and again take pains to find sources from the non-European world. The introductions to each chapter are valuable for setting a broad context, and lead efficiently into the specific readings to follow." --Philip S. Zachernuk, Dalhousie University, Department of History
"One of its major strengths is the general theme of conflict and cooperation, and how it is presented in the general introduction to the book as well as the specific introductions to each chapter. It gives a sense that this is not just a mere compilation of documents but a consistent selection according to a major theme that informed twentieth-century world history." --Jorge Nallim, University of Manitoba, Department of History
