Description
Information
The third and final volume of the history of the twentieth century takes us up to the present day, ranging across the wars in Korea, Vietnam and Bosnia, the post-war resurrection of Europe, famine in Africa, apartheid, the arms race, the shooting of President Kennedy, the dawn of the computer age, Neil Armstrong's landing on the moon, and the extraordinary advances in medical science.

The themes that dominate are the struggle for the maintenance of democracy throughout the world and the collapse of the Communist bloc but, as with the two previous volumes of this history, it is the accounts of individual experience that dominate the story and shape the interpretation of history. This is history that will change the way we understand and view the past, and approach the future.
