    Best book for begginers

    The writing style of this book is excelent. Very helpful for objective questions. The writer, although from London, has succesfully remained unbiased. Those who don't have any knowledge about twentieth century, there is no other book for you to start with.

    One disadvantage is that it does not have anything about Afganistan and Taliban issue.

    A Non- Conventional Text Book Approach

    Norman Lowe has endured the test of time in plethora of textbook on Modern World History. The writing style is unique. It keeps reader interested and engaged by giving facts in a nutshell way and analyses causes and consequences of every aspect of Modern World history beautifully. There is a forewarning: It's a textbook and does not have detailed analysis of every aspect of timeline in Modern world History. The argumentative approach is also missing understandably owing to paucity of space. ...
