Summary

This narrative text takes a balanced, global approach to the world since 1900, examining all regions without over-emphasizing Western Europe or the United States. Comparative chapters allow students to see regional interaction around the world. The environmental and technological innovations theme explores developments worldwide. "The World in 1900" highlights the major issues of the 20th century, using the Paris World\'s Fair as a case study. Each chapter contains vignettes and summary sections. New themes connect the 20th century with the 21st--including globalization, the environmental impacts of political and economic changes, and Islam and the Middle East. "Global Technologies" now appears in every chapter, and explains the development of specific technologies and examines their effect on history. New topics include horseless carriages, tanks, radio, motion pictures, titanium, and genetic engineering.
