Th 20th century and the beginning of the 21st are unique, for having been recorded not just in words, as in previous generations, but also in visual detail, captured in photographs and film. The greatest images in this era are combined in The History of the Modern World, with authoritative text to document our times with immediacy and clarity.

Every major event that has played a role in moulding the last century and up to the present days is chronicled - the death of a great queen, Victoria, at the beginning of the 20th century and the tragic demise of a beloved, princess, Diana, at its end; the civil unrest in the Balkans that led to the Great War and had grave, far-reading consequences for Yugoslavia; the destruction in the 1900s of the old Imperial Order that gave bloody birth to revolutions and civil wars and spawned the reigns of brutal dictators in Germany, Spain, Italy and Russia; the birth of the 21st century; the technological, scientific and medical advances that have transformed every aspect of our lives; and the people - politicians, scientists, movie stars, icons and writers - who have help shaped the way we think, feel and live.

In unprecedented and graphic detail, The History of the Modern World, is a concise and authoritative overview of this modern age: times of war, peace, prosperity and progress.
