AUTHORS: Findley/Rothney - ©2012
History is much more than a list of unrelated events to memorize. One text brings the twentieth century to life as it equips you with a solid understanding of the big picture. In an up-to-date, lively Seventh Edition, Findley and Rothney’s best-selling TWENTIETH-CENTURY WORLD thoroughly covers recent world history by focusing on themes of global interrelatedness, identity and difference, the rise of mass society, and technology versus nature. This unique thematic approach helps you effectively place historical events in a larger context. The new Seventh Edition integrates the latest, dramatic phases in world history, including more in-depth coverage of the economic growth of India and China, recent developments of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the global financial crash, the war on terror, new international environmental initiatives, and more.
