Description

When it comes to narrative history, J.M. Roberts is an undisputed master of his craft. His classic History of the World has sold more than a quarter million copies worldwide, and his History of Europe was acclaimed as "the best single volume history of Europe" by the London Times Literary Supplement. In his latest sweeping and entertaining work, Roberts focuses on our momentous century.

Twentieth Century places a chronological narrative of events in the context of the long-term changes that colored them. Among these are worldwide increases in life expectancy; major strides in science and technology; the radical reconfiguration of the global economy; vanished empires, shrunken white hegemony, and reassessment of "western" civilization; and the ever-evolving role of women.
