“Concise, current information ... highly recommended” - Choice, the magazine of the American Library Association

This authoritative dictionary distinguishes itself by providing informative and analytical entries on the most important people, organizations and events that have shaped our history from 1900 to the present day. Fully updated and revised, and with over 2,600 entries, this volume gives excellent ‘global’ coverage and - while also providing an enhanced coverage of the European Union - avoids presenting an exclusively ‘Euro-centric’ perspective of World History. The new edition boasts a wealth of new material including entry-level web links, extended coverage of historical context in the country entries, new and expanded biographical entries on figures such as Angela Merkel and President ‘Lula’ of Brazil, and useful tables including lists of office-holders for countries and organizations and winners of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Written by an authority in the field, this is a comprehensive reference work that will prove invaluable to a range of readers from students of history, politics, and international relations to people involved in politics, social studies and related disciplines, as well as the general reader interested in the modern world.
