The Twentieth Century

A World History

R. Keith Schoppa

New Oxford World History

  • Offers an accessible and concise historical examination of the twentieth century
  • Provides a rich and nuanced account of our recent past by focusing on lesser-known figures of the era and a balanced comparison of widespread tragedies—as in the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl— and of victories such as the success of the digital revolution of the 1980s
  • Updates our understanding of the twentieth century with discussion of migration, the rise of feminism, state formation and state-sponsored violence, and nationalism and globalization
