The XXth century: was this a hundred years of scientific and social progress, or of wars, clashes, intolerance, extermination? The 20th century: a hundred years of brilliant minds that raised humanity to a new summit, or of sinister personalities that drowned mankind in hatred and bloodshed? The young people born at the end of this ambivalent period of time inevitably ask such questions; they have the right to some answer, for the correct assessment of the past determines a better future for rising generations. The eminent French historian Marc Ferro, author of works on the key events and phenomena of recent history, presents a brief yet comprehensive overview of the 20th century, with its dramas, tragedies, and Utopias, with the ambiguity of its achievements, with its much questioned legacy for the generations to come. The moral of the story is drawn unobtrusively and the penetrating generalizations provide the young reader with a key for grasping the present and building a wiser, more humane and productive future.
