About the book:

This is a rich compilation of photographs, essays, and timelines, breaking the 20th century up into decade-long sections such as "The Age of Big Business" (1900 to 1909) and "Challenging the Establishment" (1960 to 1969). A number of respected scholars (including what feels like the entire Yale history department) have produced the historical essays, while National Geographic experts deliver articles on topics such as "Adventure and Exploration," "Mapping Our World" and "Earth's Forces." The brief items in the timeline section try to maintain a balance between "history" and "popular culture"; thus, 1969's articles include information on Chappaquiddick, the Manson family, Northern Ireland, Woodstock and Joe Namath.
