    1. Nicolas R.

      C'est un ouvrage essentiel qui constitue par soi un " must " pour les fans de l'histoire contemporain. A lire en solo ou bien après les deux autres ouvrages de la série The Age of Capital et ensuite Age of Empire (un chef d'oeuvre).

I learned a great deal about Russia that totally changed my understanding about that country and its leaders and policies. Hobsbawm's explanation of the Cold War was very eye opening. I have read Fractured Times by this author and expected equal excellence with this book. I was not dis [...]

      Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! This work is perhaps even more important than the author may have realized. We cannot grasp what lies ahead in the 21st century if we do not come to grips with the 20th. This work is called a "Short History of the Twentieth Century." The most impactful statement that stuck out to me--I paraphrase--In the 1950's 80% of the world's population came out of the Middle Ages. I never thought about it this way, but it is true. My parents did missionary work in the early [...]
