The hottest temperature in recorded history was in El Azizia, Libya in 1922. It was an astounding 136 degrees fahrenheit. Though the recorded has probably been broken by now, there have been no documentation of this.
The highest daily temperature, which the value at Al Aziziyah is still (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_weather_records#Highest_temperature_ever_recorded), has no bearing on the “hottest summer”. As the many many previous answers indicate, it depends on where you are, how you make the determination (how measured temperatures are averaged to come up with a value for “summer”) etc. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/capital-weather-gang/post/second-hottest-summer-on-record-in-us-texas-continues-sizzling/2011/09/13/gIQAMjjwPK_blog.html
The USA’s highest temperature, 134° on July 10, 1913 in Death Valley, Calif., is also the official highest temperature in the Western Hemisphere.
I attached a list of the highest recorded temperatures for each state.
There really isn’t an answer for a hottest summer across the globe since each country has its own record highs and typical temperatures. Additionally, not all parts of the planet experience summer at the same time so there is no one answer to the hottest summer on record. However, the United States’ hottest recorded summer was 2010.
