"The Twentieth Century World is the best single volume survey of international history, and it is even better in this new edition. Clear, comprehensive, and beautifully balance, it has been a consistent favorite among my students. I don't remember any textbook getting the same kind of uniformly enthusiastic reviews."--James Sheehan, Stanford University
"A leading text on international history since 1900, now updated to include more coverage of the non-Western world, NGOs, humans rights, and environmental issues. Judicious, authoritative, and comprehensive, this work is highly recommended."--Erez Manela, Harvard University
"This fine synthesis adroitly combines regional, national, and transnational levels of analysis into a coherent narrative of twentieth century history. It provides an excellent guide to both the violence that marked this period in history as well humanity's efforts to cope with it."--Emily S. Rosenberg, University of California, Irvine
"The clearest and most useful text on world politics since 1900. My students consistently give it a thumbs up, and so do I."--Charles Lipson, University of Chicago
