Equipping readers with a solid understanding of "the big picture," the new Seventh Edition of Findley and Rothney's best-selling TWENTIETH-CENTURY WORLD thoroughly covers recent world history by focusing on themes of global interrelatedness, identity and difference, the rise of mass society, and technology versus nature. This unique thematic approach helps readers effectively place historical events in a larger context. Extensively revised and updated, the Seventh Edition integrates the latest, dramatic phases in world history, including more in-depth coverage of the economic growth of India and China, recent developments of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the global financial crash, the war on terror, new international environmental initiatives, and more.
