This book has been produced in keeping with the University Grants Commission’s new syllabi for post-graduate and graduate students for M.A. (Previous) History Paper II. This paper is compulsory for History students in all the universities in the country. The experts who framed the syllabi, aimed at providing a comprehensive understanding of the many historical events of the nineteenth century to enable meaningful dialogue on the developments of the twentieth century.
The main contents include Legacy of the Nineteenth Century; World Order up to 1919; World Between the Two Wars; Second World War and the New Political Order; Cold War and its Effects; Age of Progress: Economic and Social; and Disintegration of the Socialist Bloc and the End of the Cold War. A comprehensive range of topics relating to the UGC syllabi has been included in one single book.
Students and teachers of post-graduate classes in History will therefore find this book invaluable in teaching and understanding the course effectively.
