"An Age of Progress? is an advanced examination of major twentieth-century global developments regarding violence; capitalism, socialism and cornrnunism: imperialism, racism, natiorialisrn, westernization, globalization, and international finance; freedom and human rights; physical and mental environmental changes; and culture, science, education, religion, and social criticisrn. Finally, it explores in what ways the twentieth century made significant progress and in what ways it did not. This is an exemplary text for advanced students of twentieth-century global history, especially within a seminar setting, and for general readers with an existing basic knowledge of the subject."--Jacket.
