GCSE Modern World History 2nd Edition: History in Focus - Cengage

Author(s): Ben Walsh

CIE History

A textbook for GCSE modern world history students. The core content of the major GCSE specifications in this subject is covered through explanation and carefully-selected course material. The most popular options or depth studies from each specification are covered in detail. There are questions, activities and "focus tasks" throughout to: deepen understanding of the content; develop evaluative and investigative skills; help students become more independent learners; and support examination preparation.This second edition is fully revised to meet the requirements of the revised specifications - for example the inclusion of a British depth study 1906-1918 for the OCR Modern World History specification. It extends coverage of the core content for each exam group - for example the addition of a unit on the USA 1941-1980 for the Edexcel specification. It also incorporates developments in the study and teaching of history that have taken place since the publication of the first edition.
