From the Back Cover: How an event is remembered depends on the people who record it. The broadest possible understanding of history comes from exploring multiple perspectives: from different time periods, different cultures, different ideologies. The Perspectives on Modern World History series provides multiple views of momentous events in recent history. Using primary and secondary sources, each volume provides background information on a significant event in modern world history, presents the controversies surrounding the event, and offers first-person narratives from people who lived through or were impacted by the event. All volumes in the series include an annotated table of contents, a chronology, a bibliography, and a subject index. For students and other researchers, Perspectives on Modern World History helps develop critical thinking skills, increases global awareness, and enhances an understanding of international perspectives about historic events.
