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

View: 266

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.
