SYNOPSIS : A comprehensive and balanced history of the world in the twentieth century and into the new millennium, William Duiker’s text not only chronicles the key events in the revolutionary twentieth century, but also examines the underlying issues that have shaped the times. CONTEMPORARY WORLD HISTORY, 5E, takes a global approach to the subject while doing justice to the distinctive character of individual civilizations and regions. Duiker integrates political, economic, social, and cultural history, creating a chronologically ordered synthesis that gives students the true flavor of the most decisive moments in recent world history. In addition, Duiker’s own photographs and selection of primary source documents, which illustrate much of the book, are especially effective in illustrating key points in the narrative. A new feature, Film & History, presents a brief analysis of the plot as well as the historical significance, value, and accuracy of eight films, including such movies as Khartoum (1966), Gandhi (1982), The Last Emperor (1987), and The Lives of Others (2006).

SYNOPSIS : The title is derived from a study of hotspots around the world from October 2013. In Africa, the countries covered are South Africa, South Sudan, Tunisia, Egypt, and Palestine. In the European arena, the main focus is on Ukraine, and the impact of two world powers on Eastern Europe. President Obama’s Speech to West Point recruits yields some ideas on foreign policy. So does the document on US-Africa commercial agreement for the future. The book also includes some discussion on the US’s Pivot to Asia. Together these policies point to what some visualize as a New World Order. By 2010, a unipolar world has changed into a multi-polar one, which stresses the need to democratize international institutions for global stability.
