The Twentieth Century free pdf Written by a diverse group of authors who are experts in their field, the sixth edition of this widely-used text continues to meet the needs of professors and students alike. Its clear prose weaves basic factual information and sufficient analysis to create a user-friendly text for students while still allowing for professors' personal interpretation. The first chapter introduces five key topics whose influence on the various developments and events in the 20th century are chronologically discussed throughout the text. Additions to this edition include further analysis of earlier periods based on recent scholarship, colourful new quotations, new suggested sources, more emphasis on social, economic, cultural and women's history and an updated chapter on the post-Cold War world. More analysis, less detailed and refined prose combine with these new and retained features to make this a thorough, balanced and accessible source for this past century's history. Time charts, suggested sources for additional reading, an ample array of maps and pictures, a glossary and key topics in margins supplement the text. Biography boxes add human interest and insight into the roles of individuals throughout history. The authors' wide range of expertise and gobal coverage, which includes published books on various aspects of US, Russian, Middle Eastern and Chinese history, is unmatched by any other 20th-century text.
