Essays on Twentieth-Century History Press Reviews

This collection of essays is part of a larger attempt to overturn the problematic periodization of the twentieth century that - at least in the schema of the global narrative - tends to serve as a coda to the nineteenth century... Essays on Twentieth-Century History has considerable value in teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. In both instances, the collection challenges readers to reconsider - or perhaps consider - the significance of the twentieth century in the still-developing narrative of global history. The various essays are accessible, provocative, and with many essays offering essential bibliographies, they represent a starting point for historians and historians in training.
