"The Pimlico History of the Twentieth Century" analyses the fundamental forces of population, industry and their consequences for the environment. It traces the rise and full of empires, the impact of nationalism, examines domestic politics from all political perspectives, and considers the darker side of history in the growing repressive power of states across the world and the most terrible of twentieth-century crimes - genocide.
