Summary

Global change has accelerated at an unprecedented pace in the last half-century, affecting every aspect of daily life, public and private, throughout the world. The trajectory of change points in different directions, with the world growing at once more connected and more fragmented. Commerce and migrations, television and the World Wide Web, suggest a story of growing interconnection. The proliferation of nation-states; the divisions rooted in religion, race, and material inequality; tell one of separation and conflict.

David Reynolds's brilliant history captures both themes and grounds them vividly in the people and events of the past fifty years. Kennedy and Khrushchev, Mao and Mobutu, Rachel Carson, Indira Gandhi, and Elvis all come to life in his pages. Reynolds writes with authority on politics and war, on cars, chips, and genes. His narrative is truly global in scope.
