A comprehensive and balanced history of the world in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, William Duiker's book not only chronicles the key events in the revolutionary twentieth century, but also examines the underlying issues that have shaped the times. CONTEMPORARY WORLD HISTORY, 5e, takes a global approach to the subject while doing justice to the distinct character of individual civilizations and regions. Duiker integrates political, economic, social, and cultural history, creating a chronologically ordered synthesis that gives students the true flavor of the most decisive moments in recent world history.
