A History of the Twentieth Century - 1952-1999

Author(s): Martin Gilbert


Critics heralded the first two volumes A History of the Twentieth Century as "masterly" (Boston Globe) and "deft," illuminating, and fascinating" (Henry Kissenger). Now, the final work in Martin Gilbert's magisterial and acclaimed three-volume history brilliantly charts the course of the twentieth century's last five decades. Here are gripping narrative accounts of the wars in Korea, Vietnam, and Bosnia; the postwar reconstruction of Europe; apartheid; the arms race; the moon landing; and the extraordinary advances in medical science. Mao started a cultural revolution, Martin Luther King, Jr., and John F. Kennedy were assassinated, and the computer revolution was begun. The result is nothing less than extraordinary.
