Provide complete support for the 20th Century section of the latest syllabus with best-selling books and digital resources from an author you can really trust.

This new edition of Ben Walsh's best-selling GCSE Modern World History provides a comprehensive textbook for Cambridge IGCSE History covering the 20th Century core content and developing the necessary skills.

It provides a winning combination of features that will meet the needs of all students:

- Clear, engaging and provocative author text brings the 20th Century period to life and summarises complicated history clearly without being simplistic

- Focus Tasks (exactly targeting each focus point of the 20th Century part of the syllabus) steadily deepen students' understanding of the content while progressively building their history skills

- Original and relevant source material - written and visual - is used for historical investigation not just for illustration

- Exam Focus and Revision Tips help students acquire both the necessary content knowledge and the essential conceptual understanding

In its previous editions this book has provided students with what they need to achieve their best possible results, and provided teachers with what they need to teach a rewarding and worthwhile course. It's a winning combination.

We are working with Cambridge International Examinations to gain endorsement for this title.
