About this title

Synopsis:

Authoritative and up-to-date, A Dictionary of Twentieth-Century World History provides in-depth coverage of the major historical figures and events of this century. Over 2,500 entries span political, diplomatic, and military history as well as offering both fact and analysis of these areas. Author Jan Palmowski combines full international coverage with detailed entries for every country in the world.
Some of the special features of this volume are the biographies of such world leaders as Stalin, Kennedy, Thatcher, Yeltsin, Mandela, Rabin, and Netanyahu and the coverage of political events and movements from the rise and demise of communism to the collapse of the Berlin Wall, and from the end of apartheid to the Whitewater scandal. Key battles are highlighted from Yprès to the Gulf War campaign to the Bosnian Civil War and events such as the Chernobyl disaster. Comprehensive attention is paid to major treaties and political agreements from Versailles to Maastricht, and from the Anglo-Irish Agreement to the Dayton Accords. Useful tables including lists of office-holders for countries and organizations and winners of the Nobel Peace Prize are also provided.
A Dictionary of Twentieth-Century World History is an invaluable reference work for student, teachers, and anyone with an interest in the major figures and events of our modern world.
