Contents Listing

Pearson Baccalaureate History: Single Party States will include sharply focused chapters not only on the rise and rule of Mao and Stalin but also Nasser, Nyerere, Peron and Castro. It therefore covers all four of the regional options specified for Paper Two, and will provide invaluable resources on these leaders, all of whom are identified as 'material for detailed study' in the new IB syllabus. Each leader will be discussed in detail and themes such as their rise to power; the establishment of the single party state; economic and social policies; and approaches to opposition will be covered. In addition, this volume will provide comprehensive coverage of Castro and Peron giving teachers and students access to analysis and sources that have been previously hard to get hold of in English.
