A great book which introduces the reader to history starting from World War II. Covers topics from the nuclear arms race to the creation of the European Union. Very engaging book and not boring like many others. Pick this one up.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Gidean Adams on May 4, 2013
Format: Paperback
Overall, a good explanation of world history from the mid-Twentieth Century to the present. However when it comes to US presidents and their administrations, the political opinions of the authors are very apparent, which is something I consider to be an example of professional malpractice. The Democrats are consistently projected as American heroes, and when mentioning their mistakes cannot be avoided, excuses are made for them. Whereas to the contrast, Republican presidents are consistently projected as terrible villains. As someone who is politically independent, I find this to be a form of attempted indoctrination. This greatly discredits the authors. I want material to be taught straight down the middle as much as humanly possible. I would be just as upset if this were written with a strong Republican slant.

Format: Paperback
This book definetely among the best modern international history books that I have read. The text is clear and concise and uses new information revealed since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Furthermore, the book is of a suitable length and utilizes a writing style that is informative and yet, not too bland. A casual reader and a history buff could both use this book well.

I really enjoyed this text and I thought it did a great job of assisting me in my history class regarding globalization. It was very comprehensive but also easy to read and not "too wordy". Really an enjoyable book I would recommend it to others.
