This ten-volume set picks up where the 12-volume History of the Ancient and Medieval World left off. The first volume begins with an overview of the political, social, and religious elements that engendered the modern world, examines the technological and intellectual transformations associated with modernism, and establishes a basis for understanding the internal histories of Africa and Asia. Subsequent volumes examine in greater detail the cultures, politics, and leaders of nations and empires throughout the world. Each of nine volumes contains a timeline, glossary, bibliography, and index. Volume 10 contains information such as a chronicle of world leaders, a time line of modern world history, a glossary, an index to the other nine volumes, thematic indexes, and further available resources. Generously illustrated in color and b&w. Appropriate for high school students.
