The period 1919 to 1989 witnessed major changes to international relations. These included the emergence of the USA as the world's most powerful state, and the impact of Communist Russia on European and world diplomacy. Allan Todd focuses on the problems caused by the First World War and the resulting peace treaties, as well as on the factors leading to the Second World War. He also examines developments in the Soviet Union, under Stalin, and its importance in inter-war diplomacy. The origins and the course of the Cold War are explained, with particular emphasis on Europe, Asia and the Americas.
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.
