With approximately 5,000 titles and 1.2 million pages, The Making of Modern World, Part II: 1851-1914 takes the series into the early 20th century and is comprised mainly of monographs, reports, correspondence, speeches, and surveys, providing international coverage of social, economic, and business history, as well as political science, technology, industrialization and the birth of the modern corporation. Roughly 50% percent of Part II is comprised of rare titles in languages other than English including French, German, Portuguese, Scandinavian, Italian and Spanish. It provides a glimpse into the second half of the 19th century and the global events and crises that were witnessed by those living them.
