Product Description

This dazzling overview of a turbulent century explores both dramatic events and underlying trends. Despite a terrible two-stage 'European civil war' and the traumatic rise and fall of communism, wealth has increased dramatically alongside a four-fold leap in population, women's lives have been transformed, America has assumed undisputed political and cultural leadership - and China is now clearly awaiting its moment. J. M. Roberts's earlier Penguin History of the World was a publishing landmark which informed and delighted readers all over the planet. The Penguin History of the Twentieth Century is equally powerful, international and definitive.
