In this enlargement of his outstanding history of the world, Grenville stresses the history of nation-states within a world of interdependence and regional groupings. The twentieth century remains an epoch of revolutionary change. Clashes of culture, the impact of technology, the consequences of industrialization all play out within national borders that are also porous. In this latest enlarged edition, Grenville has updated the history through 1999 and added new material on the demise of Yugoslavia, with its wars and ethnic cleansing; Clinton's policies in Haiti, Somalia, and Asia; his economic policy; Eastern Europe's new democracies; and the progress of Third World countries. Democracy and the market economy are portrayed as the linchpins of a new century.

Review:

Follows a relatively new trend among historians to abandon their sometimes narrow parochialism in favor of 'world history'...This volume deals with more thematic issues like industrialization, the empowerment of women, the rise of environmental concerns and multinational corporations. Magnificently detailed, brilliantly written...An extraordinarily readable global history. A sweeping synopsis for the history buff.
