9780155023291: An Age of Conflict: Readings in Twentieth Century European History

Derfer has assembled a variety of excerpts from historians writing about turmoil in twentieth century European history. An Age of Conflict includes informative readings that demonstrate how different historians interpret the same event. Derfler reinforces this phenomena by including readings on a variety of conflicts in modern European history. In the Second Edition of this text, Derfler has replaced several readings with more vibrant ones, and added material that covers recent, major developments in Europe.
