-----------------------------------

In this ambitious book, twenty-four of the most distinguished scholars in the world survey the momentous events and the significant themes of the twentieth century in compact, scholarly essays. The contributors tackle political issues region by region as well as non-political topics in subjects such as physics, modernism in art, international economics, and the impact of new technologies on culture. We have William H. McNeill on communications, disease, and demography, Alan Ryan on the growth of a global culture, James Patterson on the United States since 1945, Jonathan Spence on China, Lawrence Freedman on the confrontation of the superpowers, Alan Knight on Latin America, Ralf Dahrendorf on the Twenty-First Century, and much more. The authors trace the continuities which have persisted over the past hundred years and analyze the changes which have marked the century's progress. Early chapters take a global overview of the century as a whole, from a variety of perspectives-demographic, scientific, economic, and cultural. Further chapters chart the century's course, continent by continent and region by region, all written by acknowledged experts. Beautifully illustrated with both color and black and white plates, and with a detailed chronology, suggestions for further reading, and a full index, The Oxford History of the Twentieth Century is an invaluable repository of information and insight about the endlessly fascinating century we live in.
