A history of the strangest of centuries
The twentieth century should make sense. And yet what we know of the epic geopolitical and cultural events of the period seems irreconcilable with the bewildering world we find ourselves in today. With John Higgs as our guide, we are invited to take a fresh perspective of a century inhabited by the most radical artists, scientists and geniuses of their age. John Higgs shows us how to make sense of the incomprehensible in an astoundingly coherent and lucid account of the 20th century.
