Duiker (The Pennsylvania State University) chronicles the events of the 20th century since WWII in this text for undergraduates. While adopting an overall global approach, the text seeks to do justice to the distinctive character and recent developments of individual civilizations and regions. After a prologue on the global impact of WWII, subsequent chapters center on individual regions, and a final section examines major problems such as pollution, the population explosion, and spiritual malaise. Learning features include color photos and maps, boxed readings, and timelines. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
