Call number: 909.82 FIN 2011
An extract from the publisher's website states:
In the exciting new 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.
Integrating the latest dramatic phases in world history, the Seventh Edition has been extensively revised and updated, especially the period since 1945. The two chapters on Superpowers, Europe, and the Cold War have been completely rewritten.
