The Visual History of the Modern WorldUnknown - 2007
Every major event that has had a place in molding our lives is chronicled, from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day; from prohibition and crime in the 1920s and the Depression of the 1930s to the Cold War of the 1950s and the prosperity and 'free love' of the 1960s; from the attack on Pearl Harbor and America's entry into the Second World War in the 1940s up to the birth of the twenty-first century, with new millennium celebrations around the globe, and the first great tragedy of that new century with the attack on the World Trade Center in New York; the technological, scientific and medical advances that transformed every aspect of our lives; the people - politicians, scientists, movie stars, icons, writers - who shaped the way we think, feel and live. In unprecented and graphic detail, The Visual History of the Modern World is a concise and authoritative overview of this remarkable age: a time of war, peace, prosperity and progress.
