Presenting more than seven decades of authoritative news summaries and background articles, World News Digest has been completely redesigned and upgraded with a wealth of new material and a new, dynamic interface that makes it easier than ever to explore the events that shape our world.
"In the News" features concise, clearly written news summaries that provide indispensable context and perspective on important issues and events happening right now. "Featured Stories" provides analysis of contemporary affairs, and "Hot Topics" identifies the top issues that are most shaping the world today. The new "Landmark Events" highlights key events per decade from the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 to the unrest in the Middle East today. Also, users can now go "Forward in Time" or "Back in Time" to follow a chronological chain of coverage on numerous events, people, countries, and topics.
