Pimlico History of 20th Century by Clive Ponting

Book Description

How has the world changed in the last century? As we look back across a hundred years of turbulence, Clive Ponting provides a major reassessment of what the twentieth century has meant to people throughout the world. "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. "The Pimlico History of the Twentieth Century" is a provocative and challenging analysis of the whole world in the twentieth century, combining a global sweep with an eye for detail and individual experiences.
