Ferocious and all encompassing, the First World War touched countless lives in Europe and far beyond. In this volume, Susan R. Grayzel explores the unprecedented nature of modern “Total War,” and outlines the origins, experiences, and legacies of the war through — and beyond — Europe and the West. The introduction offers important insights into the cultural, political, and psychological landscape from which the war emerged, as well as a thoughtful examination of the conduct of the war and its aftermath. A wide array of documents, ranging from nationalist propaganda and diplomatic agreements to poetry and intimate letters and journals, reveal the far-reaching causes and consequences of this total war, and offer unique perspectives from voices sometimes overlooked in the study of the war — including colonial soldiers, contemporary psychologists, artists, protestors, and women at the home front and the front lines. Incisive document headnotes, maps, a chronology, questions to consider, and a bibliography enrich students’ understanding of this fateful period.

Primary source material is the current buzz concept among historians. This colorful and fascinating collection of documents traces the paper trail that is the story of Washington State from its years as a territory starting in 1854 (showing the officially recorded seal of the Washingtonia held in the Washington State Archives) to the Google map of the state that is archived in the cloud. In that 150-year span we have a letter from the chief surveyor of the territory to the acting governor in 1860 protesting the protection that a Canadian boat has given to his escaped slave. We have Governor Pickering's transcribed telegram to President Abraham Lincoln on the occasion of Thanksgiving 1864. The Point Elliot Treaty is a poignant document that transfers all of the land that becomes Seattle from the various Native tribes. A series of letters from a young woman in Spokane to her boyfriend laments the "sporting life" she finds her self mired in (that would be prostitution). The book includes posters and letters that support and condemn women's right to vote; prohibition of the sale of alcohol; aid to the unemployed during the Great Depression. Here are the manifests for materials to create the massive and highly secretive "instant" city at Richland that was the Manhattan Project. The Cold War invaded Washington, and the American Legion distributed their brochure entitled How to Spot a Communist. The modern era is represented by an ad for the first Lame Fest concert featuring Mudhoney and Nirvana, the original box that contained Windows 95, a post calling all protesters to the WTO conference, the Good Fruit Grower's celebratory comments on the rise of merlot. Historian Lorraine McConaghy has traversed the state and sifted through the files of over 100 disparate archives to cull some 400+ items represented in this book.

While world history materials date back to prehistoric times, the field itself is relatively young. Indeed, when the first edition of Peter Stearns’s best-selling World History in Documents was published in 1998, world history was poised for explosive growth, with the College Board approving the AP world history curriculum in 2000, and the exam shortly thereafter. At the university level, survey world history courses are increasingly required for history majors, and graduate programs in world history are multiplying in the U.S. and overseas. World events have changed as rapidly as the field of world history itself, making the long-awaited second edition of World History in Documents especially timely. In addition to including a new preface, focusing on current trends in the field, Stearns has updated forty percent of the textbook, paying particular attention to global processes throughout history. The book also covers key events that have altered world history since the publication of the first edition, including terrorism, global consumerism, and environmental issues.
