Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From 9/11 to the launch of the iPod, from the creation of "Gmail: to the 2004 tsunami, from the Enron Bankruptcy to the killing of Osama bin Laden, 10 Years That Shook the World is the story of an extraordinary decade. For each year, Loretta Napoleoni presents events not as a chronology bus as dispatches from the world's collective memory. Topics like politics, economics, celebrities, and the environment intersect and converge to reveal the accelerating pace of globalization and the changes that have affected us all.
