Customer Reviews

Informative, Brilliant, Highly recommended!  July 10, 2011
by


It is entertaining, sweeping and ambitious and, as such, is a wonderful one-volume introduction to the right-wing mind. Johnson offers a refreshing narrative history of the ups and downs of the 20th century. I found him to be objective and poignant. This textbook offers people who are interested in history a unique opportunity to put the Twentieth Century into perspective. I received this cheap textbook within days. It looks brand new. I highly recommend this vendor. Thank you very much.

"Frequently surprises, even startles us with new views off past events and fresh looks at the characters of the chief world movers and shakers, in politics, the military, economics, science, religion, and philosophy of six decades." -Edmund Fuller, Wall Street Journal

"Johnson's insights are often brilliant and of value in their startling freshness."-Peter Loewenberg, Los Angeles Times

"Truly a distinguished work of history Modern Times unites historical and critical consciousness. It is far from being a simple chronicle, though a vast wealth of events and personages and historical changes fill it We can take a great deal of intellectual pleasure in this book." -Robert A. Nisbet,New York Times Book Review

"Wide ranging and quirky, this history of our times (since World War I) hits all the highlights and hot spots: the Russian Revolution, the rise of Hitler, World War II, and the 1980s A letter-day Mencken, Johnson is witty, gritty, and compulsively readable." -Foreign Affairs
