About the Author:

J. A. S. Grenville is Professor of Modern History, Emeritus, at the University of Birmingham, England. He is recognized internationally for his documentary television work and is the author of a number of books, including Europe Reshaped, 1848-1878, and Politics, Strategy, and American Diplomacy.

From Library Journal:

As the present century draws to its end, publishers are rushing to record its tumultuous history. Grenville's is a recent example of this trend and of the increasing number of specialized, one-volume reference works issued during the past few years. The author of numerous books in the fields of history and politics, Grenville here presents a chronological and narrative history of our century up to 1993. The book is divided into 18 parts and further into 89 brief chapters. Illustrations (most not seen), maps, and a well-selected, briefly annotated bibliography complement the text. The narrative flows smoothly through such major events as the rise of the United States and Japan as world powers, the two World Wars, Latin America and its continuing struggles, and the dissolution of communism in Eastern Europe and concludes with the post-Cold War era and the dawn of the Clinton presidency. The emphasis is heavily political; readers seeking additional coverage of the arts, sciences, and other topics can be referred to The Facts on File Encyclopedia of the 20th Century (LJ 11/15/91) and Peter Teed's alphabetical Dictionary of 20th Century History, 1914-1990 (Oxford Univ. Pr., 1992). Recommended for academic and public libraries.
