The CGP REVISION GUIDES are absolutely excellent. I have retired now and have bought a number of these revision guides for subjects that I am interested in and I have found them to be of a very high standard. This Modern World History guide has helped me understand this history and fill in the "missing pieces " so-called! I was a young adult at the time of post World War 2 and bringing up a family during the other events discussed in the revision guide. I have now been able to understand the issues better and comprehend what was really going on at the time. I also feel that I have gained greater insight into international politics and challenges in the world today. Thank you so much for these books. They are not just for young students!
