    A Syllabus of Modern World History
    Book Description:

    A Syllabus of Modern World History was first published in 1932. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Originally published in 1930 for use with Robinson and Beard’s Development of Modern Europe, this syllabus of modern world history was designed for the freshman survey course at the University of Minnesota. After careful revision, the current syllabus accompanies Ferdinand Schevill’s A History of Europe, a standard history course text during the early twentieth century._x000B_
