Description: "The Century" has broken records since its initial publication in November 1998. The fastest-selling book over fifty dollars ever published, it shot to #1 on The New York Times bestseller list five months before the airing of the popular television series on ABC and The History Channel. More important, the book has become the focal point of school and family discussions about our shared history. As the twentieth century comes to a close, Doubleday is proud to repromote this now-classic popular history.
-- Written jointly by Peter Jennings and Todd Brewster, Senior Editorial Producer of the "The Century" series, featuring fascinating first-person accounts of the great events of the twentieth century, and illustrated with over five hundred astonishing photographs, "The Century" is as compelling as it is definitive.
-- "The Century" is beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated, four-color throughout, with one hundred twenty-five color and four hundred ten black-and-white photographs reproduced in stunning depth and clarity.

What was it like to watch the Wright brothers soar into the air, to witness flight for the first time? To listen to the first crackling voice heard on the radio? To cower in the ghastly trenches of Europe during World War I? To drive on the first paved highway, or experience the birth of rock and roll? To watch the Berlin Wall divide East and West, then, twenty-eight years later, see it fall under the weight of tens of thousands seeking to taste the freedom so long denied them? For six years, researchers, reporters, and producers for ABC News searched the world's archives for the rarest and most stunning photographs and film footage, consulted eminenttwentieth-century historians, and discovered and interviewed eyewitnesses to and participants in the greatest moments of this most eventful one hundred years in human history.

The result is this spectacular book: an epic journey through time, whose heroes are our grandparents, our parents, and ourselves.
