Milestones in Modern World History introduces students to seminal historical events that helped shape the modern world, from
tumultuous revolutions to brave declarations to decisive battles. Each title presents an in-depth look at the major players
of a particular event through in-text profiles, excerpts from primary source documents, and engaging sidebars. Bolstered by
biographical sketches, valuable photographs and illustrations, and first-person narratives, this curriculum-based series is
ideal for students writing reports or for supplementing the high school curriculum. Its world focus brings much-needed attention
to landmark events beyond the United States.
