Step back into our most recent past and see how the modern world arrived. The century 'took off' with the Wright Brothers' historic flight, then swing between two devastating world wars and people's revolutions around the globe. Discover how...
the Russian Revolution overthrew the tsars
the Cold War split Europe
hippies celebrated the Summer of Love
Mandela became South Africa's first black president
...and lots more. Cool, illustrated maps show what was happening in different places at the same time, along with milestones such as talking pictures and TV, the first Moon landing and the World Wide Web. Breathtaking!
