Table of Contents

"It is the best reader for a course on the global twentieth century that I've seen. I am looking forward to its publication.""...I can say that when it is published it will become one of the most readable and useful sourcebooks that I have seen on twentieth century history. It has a commendable balance between western and non-western sources. In terms of coverage it will be one of the best sourcebooks I have ever seen. The introductions in all sections of the manuscript are very well conceived and written. They and the analytical questions are very pertinent to the issues addressed in the readings and will be useful in formulating examinations, essay assignments, and discussion sections.""The selection of topics is excellent. The thread of women's history is greatly appreciated... The organization of the chapters gives the students a good global perspective. This is obviously not a reader that was originally about western civilization that simply inserted non-Western sources. Each area, especially Latin America, Asia, and Africa is given detailed consideration and the student gets a clear indication of the diversity of thought within each of those areas."
