Description

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 but 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 globalisation and the changes that have affected us all.


"And in the flickering of news that has passed before our eyes over the years, [10 Years That Shook the World] traces a different and deeper understanding of events than the black and white." -- Lars Linder, Dahens Nyheter (Sweden)
