SERIES: Critical Issues in World and International History
In Critical Issues in World and International History, leading scholars acquaint students with critical events, individuals, and problems in history, and emphasize narrative as a means of introducing students to historical analysis. The books consist of single-authored, thesis-driven studies that are designed as supplementary texts for survey and upper-division undergraduate world and international history courses. The series focuses on topics in all of the subdisciplines of history and spans the period from ancient history to the present. The books contain an introduction that acquaints students with the historical problem, its historiography, and its significance in history; narrative chapters that cover the chronology of the event or problem; and a concluding chapter that provides historical interpretation and analysis. Each text also includes a bibliographic essay and a glossary of terms. Editorial Advisory Board: Paul Bushkovitch, Yale University; Paul Cobb, University of Notre Dame; and James Tracy, University of Minnesota.
