I took Mr. Keylor's International Relations course and had no trouble reading through this text. At all times engaging, he addresses the key issues of the time, and perhaps more importantly, manages to convey the important nuances that shaped the decisions of senior leaders. Highly recommend reading this in conjunction with primary source readings of speeches and letters to get the full effect.

Top book about The Twentieth-Century. It is mostly about political and economical history.

It gives a great basic knowledge about this periode and it is not hard to read although it is university level.

I can't remember anything like art, music or....

I read this for a class in college back in 2001 so I don't know if later editions are good. I recommend to people curious about everything that's happened in international relations in the last one hundred years or so.
