Pressestimmen

"A triumph...Jeremy Black has given us the most truly global and most nearly comprehensive history of the twentieth century. He does justice to vital but previously under-exploited themes: science, ecology, religion. He touches parts of the world other historians cannot reach" Felipe Fernandez-Armesto "Black's book works well as a wide-ranging survey of twentieth-century world history" History Vol. 88, Iss. 2, No. 290, Apr 2003
