Description
Today, 1913 is inevitably viewed as the last year before a war that would shatter the global political order, undermining Europe's stability for decades. In this reappraisal of the era, the author of The Future History of the Arctic travels from Europe's capitals to the emerging metropolises of Canada and the United States, the imperial cities of Asia and Africa, and the boomtowns of Australia and South America, to provide a panoramic view of an already modern world crackling with possibilities, its future still undecided.

"[Emmerson draws] upon an impressive range of contemporary source material, ranging from travel guides and memoirs to unpublished diaries, newspaper reports and diplomatic memos.... [He] captures all the world's hope and excitement as it experienced an economic El Dorado."Wall Street Journal

"A masterful, comprehensive portrait of the world at that last moment in its history when Europe was incontrovertibly 'the center of the universe.'... Charles Emmerson's 1913 brilliantly rescues [history] from the shadow of a war that would toll the end of the Old World and leave its survivors repining the loss of a Golden Age that had never been."The Spectator (UK)
