I got this book when it first came out. It is a useful book to have for comparing events along different axes. Organized into reader-friendly charts, this is a portrait of the 20th century, covering worldwide highlights in politics and war, science, technology and medicine, art and literature, and social, economic and everyday life. Text is arranged in a four-column format divided horizontally by year.
