Lucidly written by two of India’s well-known historians, this book presents a comprehensive overview of world history from the last decade of the nineteenth century to present times. Using the two world wars as their principal focal points but without in any way being euro-or Westcentric, the book chronicles the major watershed events that have shaped and defined today’s world. Beginning with the events that led to the First World War to the events of 9/11, the book comprehensively discusses various events and forces, like the Black people’s struggle for equality in the US, the anti-imperialist and nationalist movements in Asia and Africa, the formation of the United Nations, the Cold War and the construction of the unipolar world. In the entire arrangement of themes, the primary aim of the authors is to establish the interconnectedness of events and their bearing on the progress of world history. History of the World should be essential reading for undergraduate students of history. Students of international relations will also find the book useful.
