    The world at the beginning of the 20th century seemed for most of its inhabitants stable and relatively benign. Globalizing, booming economies married to technological breakthroughs seemed to promise a better world for most people. Instead, the 20th century proved to be overwhelmingly the most violent, frightening and brutalized in history with fanatical, often genocidal warfare engulfing most societies between the outbreak of the First World War and the end of the Cold War. What went wrong? How did we do this to ourselves? The "War of the World" comes up with compelling, fascinating answers. It is Niall Ferguson's masterpiece.

    O avtorju

    -Niall Ferguson-

    NIALL FERGUSON (1964) je večkrat nagrajeni britanski zgodovinar in predavatelj na harvardski univerzi (ob tem sodeluje tudi s prestižnima in uglednima univerzama Oxford in Stanford), ki se je specializiral za področji ekonomske in politične zgodovine. Je avtor štirinajstih strokovnih knjig, ki večinoma posegajo na področje kulturne in ekonomske zgodovine zahodne civilizacije, med drugim Imperij(2003, o vzponu angleškega imperija), Kolos (2004, o vzponu in zatonu Amerike) in Vzpon denarja(2008, o finančni zgodovini sveta). Poleg tega je tudi kolumnist in redni pisec člankov za priznane svetovne časopise in revije, kot sta Time in Newsweek. Po petih njegovih knjigah so bile posnete dokumentarne serije, Civilizacijo, ki je prvi prevod njegovega dela v slovenščino, pa smatrajo za njegovo najboljše delo doslej.
