 DESCRIPTION
spacer
An Encyclopaedia of the Twentieth Century is a modest attempt to recapture some of the momentous changes that have taken place throughout the world during the last hundred years. The study is divided into three volumes. Volume one deals with India, volume two with Asia and Africa and volume three with the West, particularly Europe and USA. Volume one dealing with India is grouped into four sections: 1. Historical perspectives; 2. Entries from A to Z; 3. Chronology of the twentieth century India, and 4. Bibliography. The section on historical perspectives discusses the geographical setting, India’s evolution through the ages, religious currents, social structure, economic conditions, arts and literature. Section two contains about 2500 entries relating to different aspects of Indian life and thought in their varied manifestations. The volume also carries a detailed chronology and bibliography. The second volume broadly follows the pattern of the first volume with focus on Asia and Africa, the two oldest and most populous continents of the earth, presently known as the third world in the context of development. The colonial powers of the west including Portugal, Spain, Britain, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and at a later stage USA conquered most of the third world and exploited its resources for their own industrial prosperity. After the second world war the capacity of the colonial powers to rule foreign lands was adversely affected and almost all the countries of Asia and Africa gradually attained independence. They are now making utmost efforts to remodel their destiny. The third and the concluding volume of the trilogy concerns itself with the dominance of the west, its ever-widening sweep of political ideals, social norms, materialistic considerations, literary styles, scientific temperament and technological accomplishments. An important innovation of this volume involves the inclusion of some basic documents which have shaped the course of world history. It is reasonably hoped that the encyclopaedia would be found useful by the students of contemporary affairs as a dependable ready reference tool.
