About this item

This book presents the history of a civilization scrambling to save itself from looming disaster. By 1918 an entire generation felt themselves poised at a crossroads: a choice between chaos and decline or a new world political and economic order and despite the yearning for peace, war appeared unavoidable. Chapters cover the intellectual, scientific and cultural responses fo an age of anxiety and fear, the Russian Revolution and the Great Crash of 1929, how dictatorship came to replace democracy and the irresistable slide toward a second world war. Fully updated, this new edition features expanded sections on gender, culture and social policy as well as empire and globalisation.
