Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Twentieth-Century World and Beyond: An International History Since 1900, Fifth Edition, explores the history of modern relations between the U.S., Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The book's unique analytical framework--which focuses on the relationships between these countries rather than on their individual histories--helps readers to easily examine how the nations of the world have interacted since the beginning of the last century. Extensively revised in this fifth edition, The Twentieth-Century World and Beyond reflects the latest scholarship and also features photographs for the first time--more than fifty throughout the text. The new edition addresses such issues as refugees and stateless persons, human rights, the environment, and the events of September 11, 2001. Updated to include the war on terrorism, military action in Iraq, and the causes and consequences of globalization, this edition also explores the expanding role of nongovernmental organizations, the threat of AIDS to world order, narcotics trafficking, and environmental degradation. Examining a wide range of countries, The Twentieth-Century World and Beyond, Fifth Edition, is ideal for undergraduate and graduate courses in twentieth-century international history, twentieth-century world history, and international relations.

Synopsis:

This highly successful text offers a narrative account of twentieth-century international history with extensive coverage given to the United States, Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The book uses a distinctive analytical framework in order to examine the evolving

relations between the major world powers throughout the last century. Now in its fourth edition, The Twentieth-Century World has been thoroughly updated to reflect the full span of the twentieth century up through the year 2000. Keylor expands his coverage of such recent events as the Middle East

peace process, NATO expansion, negotiations for the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, and the war in Chechnya. This new edition includes a completely up-to-date bibliographical essay and 27 maps for ease of reference. Its clear and concise style make The Twentieth-Century World an essential

text for courses on twentieth-century international history.

Synopsis:

This collection takes a fresh textual approach to Pope's achievement. The contributors focus on topics and issues important to Pope but rarely discussed, including his relation to slavery (the leading human issue of his time) and to non-sexual bonds between men and women.
