How has the world changed in the last century?As we look bacl across a hundred years of turbulence, Clive Ponting provides a major reassessment of what the twentieth century has meant to people throughout the world. Progress and Barbarism analyses the fundamental forces of population, industry and their consequences for the enviro-ment. It traces the rise and fall of empires, the impact of nationalism examines domestic politics from all political perspectives, and con-siders the darker side of history in the growing repressive power of states across the world and the most terrible of twentieth-century crimes-genocide. Progress and Barbarism is a provocative and challenging interpretation of twentieth-century history, combining a global sweep and an eye for detail and individual experiences.
