From the Publisher:
Volume Two picks up where World History the Easy Way, Volume One ended. The first unit covers continental interactions between 1500 and 1789, and considers the development of shipbuilding that sent European explorers around the world, even as Europeans clashed among themselves over religious issues. Also considered is the ascendancy of the Ottoman Empire, Mughal rule in India, the Manchus in China, and Spanish conquests in the Americas. The book's second unit summarizes the era of European world domination between 1789 and 1914. High points include the French Revolution, Napoleonic Europe, British imperial expansion, the revolutions in the Americas, and the rise of the United States and Canada as world powers. The third and final unit surveys World War I, the period between wars and the struggle between democratic and totalitarian political philosophies, the rise of Hitler, World War II, postwar Europe, the end of colonialism in the Southwest Asian, Indian, and African worlds, the Soviet Union, the Cold War, United States dominance, Chairman Mao and China's dominance in East Asia, and the events affecting the Pacific nations.
