The period 1890 to 1945 witnessed such momentous events in European history as the Russian Revolution and the First and Second World Wars. It also saw the rise and fall of Hitler's Nazi Germany and Mussolini's Fascist Italy. In this accessible and stimulating text, Frank McDonough concentrates on a number of key themes: the conflict which produced the two world wars, the road to the Russian Revolution and the fascist regimes in Germany and Italy. The text also examines the main historical debates surrounding these topics. Conflict, communism and fascism includes a document study section on Nazi Germany 1933-1945.
The AS textbooks are ideal for students who have never studied the history of these periods before. they provide detailed background information on the period studied, and include notes explaining key terms, lists of significant dates, and focus questions to consolidate learning.
All of the AS titles have been endorsed by OCR for use with their AS specification for history, and several of the titles will also be appropriate for Edexcel and AQA study units.
Many of the books include a seperate document section, where students can study and evaluate a range of source material.
Shorter themed books explore particular topics in greater depth. The topics examined can be linked with the period covering foundation texts, providing students and teachers with flexibillity in structuring A Level courses.
