About This Item

What was it like to watch the Wright brothers soar into the sky? To hear the first crackling voice aired on the radio? To cower in the ghastly trenches of Europe during World War I? To lose everything in the stock-market crash of 1929, or experience the birth of rock and roll? To watch the Berlin Wall divide East and West, and then, twenty-eight years later, to see it fall under the weight of tens of thousands seeking to taste freedom?

For seven years, researchers, reporters, and producers for ABC News searched the world's archives. These news people looked for the rarest and most stunning photographs. They consulted eminent twentieth-century historians. They interviewed hundreds of eyewitnesses of the significant events of the twentieth century.

As a result, you have available to you this splendid book, The Century. This is the independent, companion volume to the landmark ABC News television series, The Century, also featured on The History Channel. This book was written by the late Peter Jennings, ABC News Anchor, and Todd Brewster, Senior Editorial Producer.

Each chapter is threaded through with fascinating, first-person accounts of the great events of the twentieth century. The book is illustrated with over five hundre color and black-and-white photographs, reproduced in exquisite depth and clarity. Many of these photographs have never been published before now.

The Century presents history as it was lived, as it will be remembered for the next hundred years. Here, available to you, is a keepsake volume, destined to be an essential part of your family library. This book portrays an epic journey through the twentieth century; its heroes are our grandparents, our parents, ourselves.

A Catholic publisher in San Francisco says, "Items are not sold on approval. No returns or exchanges except for damaged or defective products. Problems must be noted within 30 days of receipt of product. Shipping costs will not be refunded."

A Catholic publisher in New Jersey says that refunds are granted for products that are damaged in transit or defective in nature. "No return will be accepted unless it has been approved previously by phone and assigned a return material authorization number."

Of course, if you have received damaged, defective, or incorrectly shipped books or other merchandise, please call or email us for instructions on returns.
