Description
How would one go about deciding which was the century of greatest change? Imagine pitting the Black Death against the suffrage vote, or the Industrial Revolution against the Internet. Best known as the author of The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England, historian Ian Mortimer takes us on a whirlwind tour of the past millennium in Western civilization. It is a story of godly scientists, shrewd farmers, cold-hearted entrepreneurs, and strong-minded women, of discovery, invention, revolution, and cataclysmic shifts in perspective—all of it bursting with ideas and underscored by a wry sense of humor in Mortimer's telling.

"I loved this book.... It will enable you to understand your past, your place in it and that of your ancestors as never before. A modern classic."—Mail on Sunday (London)
