Reprint. Originally published: 2001.

This single-volume history takes us up to the 21st century, weaving a rich historical narrative of the multifarious and contradictory events of the 20th, ranging across the bloody events of many wars (from Korea to Bosnia), the post-war resurrection of Europe and the United Nations, the Arms Race, the shooting of JFK, the advent of computerisation, Man's arrival on the moon, AIDS and heart transplants, Tiananmen Square and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

This is history that aims to make sense of the most destructive yet most creative century humanity has ever experienced.
