s t From the Alchemists of China to the Battlefields of Europe, For some the twentieth century is seen as a big budget disaster film the stifling darkness of oppression the greed of the ruling classes For the world s elite the near universal adoption of capitalism today reveals history as a narrative of unbroken progress Avoiding conventional chronological accounts The Twentieth Century is organized around the major themes of the last hundred years To help us understand our recent past and probable future Clive Ponting offers a world systems theory A few core states have dominated much of the rest of the world which provides raw materials and cheap labor and remains tied to the core as virtual colonial territory Between these extremes are Latin America the Middle East and eastern Asia whose people have only a limited shot at self determination as economic social and political differences between the core and periphery continue to grow br br The book s central theme revolves around the struggle between progress and barbarism the hope for our future is that our conscience will catch up with our reason On the eve of the millennium this vivid history of the century is a must read, The Crimean War is full of resonance not least the Charge of the Light Brigade the Siege of Sevastopol and Florence Nightingale at Scutari with her lamp In this fascinating book Clive Ponting separates the myths from the reality and tells the true story of the heroism of the ordinary soldiers often through eye witness accounts of the men who fought and those who survived the terrible winter of br br To contemporaries it was The Great War with Russia fought not only in the Black Sea and the Crimea but in the Baltic the Arctic the Pacific and the Caucasus Ironically Britain s allies were France her traditional enemy ably commanded from home by Napoleon III himself and the Muslim Ottoman Empire widely seen as an infidel corrupt power It was the first of the modern wars using rifles artillery trench systems steam battleships telegraph and railways yet the British soldiers wore their old highly coloured uniforms and took part in their last cavalry charge in Europe There were over casualties br br Britain was unable fully to deploy her greatest strength her Navy while her Army was led by incompetent aristocrats The views of ordinary soldiers about Raglan Cardigan and Lucan make painful reading, No description available
