This is an in-depth but accessible study of one of the most popular GCSE Modern World History topics. It seeks to offer the right balance between essential, factual content and helpful, illuminating sources. There are exam-practice questions for each of the main awarding bodies, explanatory "factfiles" and mini-biographies to support the detailed yet accessible narrative, a study-skills section, and questions throughout designed to help students build up their notes. A matching chart is included, to show the best "pathway" for each awarding body.
