The Century for Young People is a riveting read and an essential research volume. It is the story of our time for all time.

About the Author

Peter Jennings (1938–2005) was chief anchor of ABC’s World News Tonight. In more than 40 years as a broadcast journalist, he worked in most parts of the world, from the American South to Southern Africa, from the Middle East to eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Among hundreds of programs he was a part of, he treasured those he did with and for the young.

Todd Brewster was the senior editorial producer of ABC’s The Century television series. In more than 25 years as a journalist, he has covered the American national political scene and the collapse of Communism in eastern Europe, both for Life, where he was a writer and editor. He is currently the new director of the Center for Oral History at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
