Description

The 20th century has been a period of spectacular change. We have moved from letters in the mail to e-mail on the Internet, from the horseless carriage to the space shuttle, from the bayonet to the atomic bomb. The Oxford Children's Book of the 20th Century looks at the grand themes of the last 100 years, examining both serious and not so serious subjects in the scientific, cultural and political spheres. War, sports, the technological revolution, entertainment, racism and fourteen other subjects are each treated in self-contained double-page spreads which explain clearly and authoritatively the major developments within the area throughout the century. Dramatic changes--so dramatic that children can find them hard to grasp--are simply explained in a text that is supported by stunning photos, maps, and diagrams.show more
