📙 Twentieth-Century World History by William J. Duiker — free pdf


A comprehensive and balanced history of the world in the twentieth century, William Duikers text not only chronicles the key events in this revolutionary century, but also examines the underlying issues that have shaped the times. TWENTIETH-CENTURY WORLD HISTORY takes a global approach to the subject while doing justice to the distinctive 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. In addition, Duikers own photographs and selection of primary source documents, which illustrate much of the book, are especially effective in illustrating key points in the narrative.
