Four chapters contain entries that, together, attempt to sum up the entire history of the world during the 20th century. Beginning with a year-by-year chronology listing major events (categorized under the topic headings of arts and entertainment, ideas, military, politics, science and technology, society, and sports), the volume moves to alphabetical compendiums of major events and movements, and biographical entries on major figures in the aforementioned categories. Finally, each country of the world is listed by its current name, and demographic and historical data are presented. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
