Violent uprisings are tearing apart the Middle East, nationalism is on the march in Europe, and an unlikely presidential candidate is running for election in the U.S. on a populist platform to put "America first." The year is 1920. Here David Charlwood tells the story of 12 months that set in motion 100 years of history, profiling such figures as Woodrow Wilson, David Lloyd-George, Gertrude Bell, and Warren Harding. From America to Asia, the events of 1920 foreshadowed the decline of empires, and—due in part to the failures of the Versailles Treaty—the coming of another global conflict.
