This book is a comprehensive compilation of world history topics that cover from the Ancient World Civilizations to the post-World war II period. The book, however, does not include African History issues. It constitutes such essential historical topics as the Ancient World Civilizations, The Great Geographical Discoveries, The Industrial Revolution and its socioeconomic and political consequences, the various revolutionary movements particularly in Europe, The First World War and its impacts, the Post-First World War developments, The Second World War and its effects, and developments in the Post-Second World War, with particular emphasis on the Cold War and its global impacts. Many Maps, figures, diagrams and tables are included to make the compilation more illustrative and descriptive. This book without any exaggeration is an important and comprehensive reference for world history student and readership.
