"At the threshold of a new millennium, we look back on an extraordinary century, the most momentous and eventful in the history of humankind. In a hundred years that encompass both astonishing achievements and unparalleled horrors, the world has seen the greatest scientific triumphs ever imagined and the two most destructive wars ever fought. At the dawn of the 20th century, powered flight was a visionary dream. A mere seven decades later, American astronauts stood on the moon and gazed back at Earth. As old empires fell, new superpowers arose to take their place. As new discoveries vastly increased our store of knowledge, new technologies shrank the globe and accelerated the pace of life. And as era succeeded era, National Geographic was there to chronicle our ever changing world. Book jacket."--Jacket
