Description

Never has the concept of six degrees of separation been more vivid than during the tumultuous events of the 20th century. From Mohandas Gandhi to Joseph Stalin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Fidel Castro, and Nelson Mandela, modern history is woven together in a tapestry of the interrelated stories of these leaders and the events they witnessed. Contemporary readers will understand as never before that history is built of subtle intersections that have great consequences.show more

Review quote

Through the Looking Glass Children's Book ReviewWonderfully written and packed with interesting pieces of information, this excellent title not only tells the story of ten extraordinary world leaders, but readers will also see how these ten people were associated in some way. It is interesting to see how the thread of connection runs through the book.show more
