Since 1800 the countries of the world have undergone dramatic political, economic, and social changes, the result of such upheavals as the Industrial Revolution, colonization, two world wars, and scientific/technological advances. This volume of the Oxford Illustrated Encyclopedia covering World History: from 1800 to the present day provides 2,400 detailed entries, alphabetically arranged, that cover statesmen and rulers, reformers and rebels; military and naval campaigns; religious and political, and social movements; and the history of individual countries, continents, and alliances, including Britain, Europe, the United States, Canada, Africa, Asia, the Indian sub-continent, the Soviet bloc, and the Middle East. Maps and diagrams, numerous color and black and white photographs, and supplementary cross-references all combine to provide a comprehensive and authoritative reference work for home or school.
