Designed as a comprehensive, chronological introduction to world history in the 20th century, this book presents 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 discussions around the central argument that the single most profound global transformation in human relations during the 20th century has been the demise of all remaining empires and the emergence?in their place?of nation-states. Chapter topics organize the events of the 20th century under one principal theme??from empires to nations??introduced throughout the twelve chapters. Key coverage includes the latest historical studies of the Japanese Empire, the great religious communities in South Asia, an analysis of the rise and fall of communism in Europe and Asia, and the role of the Soviet Union in the 20th century. For anyone interested in World History?and placing it in the context of life today.
