Description: "Immediate and evocative, letters witness and fasten history, catching events as they happen", write Lisa Grunwald and Stephen J. Adler in their introduction to this remarkable book. Here is Mark Twain's hilarious letter of complaint to the head of Western Union, an ecstatic letter from a young Charlie Chaplin upon receiving his first movie contract, Einstein's letter to Franklin Roosevelt warning about atomic warfare, and a letter from young Bill Gates imploring hobbyists not to share software so that innovators can make some money....

In these pages, our century's most celebrated figures become everyday people and everyday people become a part of history. Here is a wrenching letter left at the Vietnam Wall, a poignant correspondence between two women trying to become mothers, a heartbreaking letter from an AIDS sufferer telling his parents how he wants to be buried, an indignant e-mail from a PC user to his on-line server....

Arranged chronologically by decade, "Letters of the Century" makes vivid and personal the great moments of our century. "Letters", write Grunwald and Adler, "give history a voice".
