From the cover: “The Times Atlas of the 20th Century is a major new treatment of this century of paradox and progress. Its richly interwoven tapestry of text, maps and illustrations brings sharply into focus our century’s main themes and underlying problems. Richard Overy’s compelling and analytical text takes the world from the pomp of Europe’s colonial heyday and the cataclysm of the First World War through the Great Depression, the Second World War and the Cold War to the uncertain stumblings of the New World Order. Special attention is paid to the themes and challenges which have faced us throughout the century — the environment, health, science, leisure and technology. With over 200 full-colour maps and more than 300 photographs, the book is a visual feast and a work of substantial scholarship.”
