Members, log in for full details

World History: The Modern Era is the latest update of the reference standard of electronic history reference materials for high school and high-level middle school coursework. From the ongoing crises in the Middle East to civil strife across Africa to the vestiges of communism in China, South Korea, and Cuba, we live in a world where current conflicts have deep historical roots. Is it possible for cultures--or humanity in general--to truly leave the past behind? World History: The Modern Era covers a broad range of topics in depth--the evolution of modern Europe since the Renaissance; concurrent developments in Asia, Africa, and the Islamic world; the global impact of the Industrial Revolution; and the last 100 years of conflicts and international cooperation. This comprehensive resource provides easy-to-navigate access to authoritative information for research purposes, brings history to life via a range of source materials, and helps students improve their information literacy skills. Organized chronologically and thematically, World History is correlated to the most current state and national standards, assessments, and textbooks, and supports a variety of learning styles and instructional approaches. In addition, the Analyze section is specifically designed to engage young minds and provide instructors with the necessary tools for lively, historical inquiry lessons. Whether used for research, as a study aid for test preparation, a source for enhancing lectures, or the sole content basis for a course, this database expands and completes any library collection. This resource is available in formats designed specifically for academic libraries or public and K-12 libraries. The Academic database includes a feature titled "Idea Exchange." This collection of peer-reviewed articles presents multiple perspectives on core topics and is designed to encourage deeper scholarly exploration and discussion. The articles serve as models of well-constructed argumentative essays. And, they are citable for college- and university-level research papers. Users will find current MLA 7th edition, Chicago 15th ed., and APA 6th edition citation options to help simplify the bibliographic process.
