A companion to the PBS documentary series, Peoples Century is copiously illustrated, and the text, by veteran British journalist and historian Godfrey Hodgson, does a good job of documenting the colossal events of the century from the bottom up.MoreA companion to the PBS documentary series, Peoples Century is copiously illustrated, and the text, by veteran British journalist and historian Godfrey Hodgson, does a good job of documenting the colossal events of the century from the bottom up. Beginning with an essentially chronological approach that moves from World War I and the global depression onward to World War II and the cold war, the book transitions into a thematic organization, which covers such historical trends as movements against state racism, the international awareness of environmental problems, and the worldwide struggle for womens equal rights. Many personal stories humanize the sweeping themes and serve to make Peoples Century as entertaining as it is educational. --Robert McNamara
