Very readable

by rienzi on Apr 26, 2007

Watson, who was a journalist, does an excellent job in putting the 20th century into perspective. We have used the book in an advanced History class (grad level) and it was one of the easiest to read and understand. Spins a web tying many of the 20th centuries great thinkers together with the Arts and Sciences, etc.
