For one quarter/semester courses in World History emphasizing the 20th century.

The World in the Twentieth Century discusses the major political and economic changes that have reshaped global relations and focuses on the forces leading to the collapse of empires and the resulting rise of nationalism throughout the world. It develops the thematic argument that the single most profound global transformation in human relations during the twentieth century has been the demise of all remaining empires and the emergence–in their place–of nation-states.
