Written by a diverse group of scholars who bring their regional expertise together, this best-selling text offers a balanced treatment of global events and developments in the twentieth century and beyond. By integrating key themes of science and technology, economics, political and social developments, international relationships, and cultural trends throughout its chronological chapters, the book uses its organization as a key tool to help students appreciate this important period in global history. Its clear prose weaves basic factual information and analysis together to create a student-friendly text, while still allowing for professors' personal interpretations. This seventh edition incorporates the latest scholarship on twentieth century history, including the work of a new co-author, Michael Schroeder, and addresses key issues of twenty-first century concern, including terrorism, the environment, and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased July 9, 2012
By Mary
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am very satisfied with the condition of the book and its quick delivery. It was a little bent, but otherwise in near perfect condition for a softcover textbook. It will serve me well and I am confident this book will last the next two years of the International Baccalaureate programme. I would definitely repurchase from this seller based on the quality of this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A text is a text March 1, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What can I say? Its a textbook. I did like that maps were included that showed the movement of the different nations during the different periods in time. It helped to track movement. I didn't feel that it was the greatest text for my specific class, but that is really the school's fault.

Although the text was required for class, it was excellent! It covers all of the 20th century history in a easy understandable text. It would be worth reading for the novice and well as the history major, I really enjoyed it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good price for an excellent textbook January 5, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Amazon price was so much better than the price at my college bookstore, it became a no-brainer to purchase it here. The textbook itself was one of the best, most concise and engaging books on 20th century history I've ever read. It really made the class that I took.
