Description
Blending elements of European, United States, and World history into a coherent examination of the past five hundred years, this rich anthology provides an extensive collection of primary source documents that will deepen readers' understanding of history and the global village in which they live their personal and professional lives. Focuses on seven major currents of modern history that have originated in the western world, but which have had global consequences: The Age of Exploration and Discovery, the Age of the Democratic Revolutions, Industrial Revolution, Nationalism and Imperialism, World War I and Its Aftermath, World War II and Its Consequences, and the New World Order. Examines the global interaction of European and United States colonization and imperialism on the native cultures of Africa, the Americas, and Asia, as well as the reactions of those peoples to westerners. Traces the development of women's roles and experiences throughout modern history. Reveals the impact of modernization and westernization on traditional societies, and presents the views and actions of leaders who struggled to meet the challenges presented by foreigners. Features documents on recent events and trends, including the post-Cold War world, Nationalism and fundamentalism, and environmental concerns. Provides unit introductions (clear narrative summaries that place the documents in their proper historical contexts ), and informative headnotes to concisely identify documents.
