Researchers, reporters, and producers for ABC News searched the world’s archives for the rarest and most stunning photographs and images, consulted eminent twentieth-century historians, and discovered and interviewed hundreds of eyewitnesses and participants in the significant moments of the most eventful one hundred years in human history for this book. Co-written by ABC News Anchor Peter Jennings and Senior Editorial Producer Todd Brewster, The Century features a narrative of extraordinary quality that tracks major themes–the impact of technology, the soaring of the imagination, the ghastly violence, the joy of entertainment–through chronological chapters recounting the signal moments of each era in the century. From “Seeds of Change: 1901-1914” to “Machine Dreams: 1990-1999,” each chapter is threaded through with fascinating first-person accounts of the great events of the twentieth century, and illustrated with over five hundred color and black-and-white photographs (many never published before) reproduced in exquisite depth and clarity.
