Place names are a window into the history and characteristics of a country. Their names reflect the migrations of peoples, their religious and cultural traditions, local languages, conquests and fortifications long since disappeared. They also reflect the topography and industrial development of a place. The text is ordered by country alphabetically. The book will include a historical section, putting the place name into context, and references those events, which have had an impact on the geography of a country, and those foreign influences, which have played a part in shaping the place name. This volume is confined to the 38 countries of Europe, together with Andorra, Gibraltar, Liechtenstein, Malta, Monaco, San Marino, Cyprus and the Vatican City. All place names of cities and towns of particular importance and interest are included. Detailed maps accompany the text to illustrate change and evolution.

A HISTORY OF THE WORLD FROM THE 20th TO THE 21st CENTURY With the onset of decolonisation, the rise and fall of fascism and communism, the technological revolution and the rapidly increasing power of the US, the world since 1900 has witnessed global change on an immense scale. Providing a comprehensive survey of the key events and personalities of this period throughout the world, A History of the World from the 20th to the 21st Century includes discussion of topics such as: • the conflict in Europe, 1900–19 • the brutal world of the dictators, 1930s and 1940s • the lost peace: the global impact of the Cold War • independence in Asia and Africa • the ‘war’ against terror. This now acclaimed history of the world has been updated throughout to take account of recent historical research. Bringing the story up to date, J. A. S. Grenville includes a discussion of events such as 9/11, recent economic problems in Latin America, the second Gulf War and the enlargement of the European Union. A fascinating and authoritative account of the world since 1900, A History of the World from the 20th to the 21st Century is essential reading for the general reader and student of world history alike. J. A. S. Grenville is Professor of Modern History, Emeritus, at the University of Birmingham. He is a distinguished historian and is the author of a number of books, including Politics, Strategy and American Diplomacy (1969), Europe Reshaped, 1848–1878 (1999) and The Major International Treaties of the Twentieth Century (2000).

Fritze, American Reference Books Annual ‘Follows a relatively new trend among historians to abandon their sometimes narrow parochialism in favour of “world history” . . . This volume deals with more thematic issues like industrialization, the empowerment of women, the rise of environmental concerns and multinational corporations.’ Foreign Affairs ‘Magnificently detailed, brilliantly written . . . An extraordinarily readable global history.’ Parade Magazine ‘This book by the masterful international relations historian, Grenville, already finds primacy of place in the reading lists of most university courses as the single definitive history of this century.’ The Journal of the United Service Institution of India

A History of Russia covers the entire span of the country's history, from ancient times to the post-communist present. Keeping with the hallmark of the text, Riasanovsky and Steinberg examine all aspects of Russia's history-political, international, military, economic, social, and cultural-with a commitment to objectivity, fairness, and balance. New chapters on politics, society, and culture since 1991 explore Russia's complex experience after communism and discuss its chances of becoming a more stable and prosperous country in the future. Widely acclaimed as the best one-volume history available, A History of Russia is available in two split volumes-the first covers early Russia through the nineteenth century and the second ranges from 1855 to the present. Volume II features an additional introductory chapter that links Russia's modern history to the events that preceded it.

In the twentieth century England has lost an empire, built a welfare state, and begun to accept the idea of being part of Europe. Abroad relative power has declined; at home life has become more tolerable for the unfortunate and more secure for the majority of the people. This book surveys these two great currents of change and examines their political and economic implications. For this fourth edition, Lloyd has revised the text and brought the Bibliography up to date. He has included a completely new chapter which brings the story right up to the General Election of 1992.

A History of Russia: Peoples, Legends, Events, Forces is a comprehensive narrative conceived and developed after the collapse of the former Soviet Union. Informed by the burgeoning historiography of the 1990s, the text balances political and economic explorations of everyday life, social roles, cultural dynamics, and gender issues. Many texts on this subject are written from a pre-Confederation point of view that may be unsuitable for today's classroom. This text provides strong coverage of 20th-century Russia and the U.S.S.R. without sacrificing its coverage of earlier historical periods.
