Term Paper Resource Guide to Twentieth-Century World History


This historical research guide provides students and their teachers with 600 term paper ideas and cites more than a thousand print and nonprint sources on the 100 most important events that have shaped 20th-century world history. Organized in chronological order, the guide features entries on key events in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Latin America that are covered in the world history curriculum in secondary schools and colleges. From the 1905 revolution in Russia to the Chinese economy at the end of the twentieth century, a wide range of political, economic, social, and cultural events are included. Each entry consists of a capsule description of the event, followed by six specific suggestions for research papers about the event, and a wide-ranging annotated bibliography of books, articles, videos, and Web sites appropriate for student research.
