It's amazing how much can change in 100 years. The 20th century has seen an explosion in population, computer technology, industrial engineering, space exploration and medical science. It's a century of wars and peace, great leaders and fallen dictators. While the information produced in this extraordinary period could fill several libraries, The Atlas of the Twentieth Century provides a comprehensive overview of the century, offering snapshots of the major events, people and discoveries that shaped history. Michel Pierre gives kids ages eight and up a chance to view this century as a whole.
