Powered by Handmark, an incredibly useful reference, the Oxford Dictionary of World History has been fully revised and updated in order to bring it into the 21st century. It contains over 4,000 clear and concise entries on all aspects of history, from prehistory right up to the present day. Biographies of key figures in world history range from Alexander the Great to Bill Clinton, Elizabeth I to Nelson Mandela. There are separate entries for every country in the world summarizing the key historical events and important figures in that nation's history.

New to this edition are brand-new entries such as George Bush, Osama bin Laden, 9/11, and the 2004 tsunami, while many other entries have been substantially revised to reflect new developments. Twenty-five maps cover events and topics such as the Black Death and the African slave trade, and detailed subject entries on religious and political movements, international organizations, and key battles and places in world history give this dictionary a truly international scope.

Easy to use yet encyclopedic in scope, A Dictionary of World History provides an excellent overview of world history both for students and the general reader.
