Summary
"ln 'Millennium', bestselling historian Ian Mortimer takes the reader on a whirlwind tour of the last ten centuries of Western history. It is a journey into a past vividly brought to life--and bursting with ideas--that pits one century against another in his quest to measure which century saw the greatest change. Here is a story of brilliant scientists, fearless adventurers, cold-hearted entrepreneurs, and strong-minded women--a story of discovery, invention, revolution, and cataclysmic shifts in perspective. Millennium is a journey into the past like no other. Our understanding of human development will never be the same again"--Jacket
