¦Robert Fox¦s first-rate treasury of reportage, diaries, oral history, and even fiction frames a scintillating panorama of the 20th century¦s decisive moments ¦To have an anthology of first-rate eyewitness material of this kind is both a treat and an education. ¦ A.C. Grayling, Financial Times

¦In assembling his composite portrait of the last century, Robert Fox aimed at the ¦magical effect of giving the reader the sensation of being there at great and curious events, and with extraordinary people.¦ For the most part, he has succeededS It is an enthralling mix, leavened with the frequent testimony of non-celebrities who just happened to wander into the historical hurricaneS A valuable book. It vividly illustrates a general principle of such first-person testimonies: they are most interesting when they surprise us, when some element of human perversity creeps into the picture and messes with our expectations.¦ -- The New Republic

"A fun readS It's easy to flip a few pages to find another fascinating peek into the 20th century." - San Francisco Chronicle
