Reseña del editor:

Niall Ferguson's The War of the World: History's Age of Hatred re-tells the story of history's most savage century as a continual war that raged for 100 years.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, globalizing, booming economies married to technological breakthroughs seemed to promise a better world for most people. Instead, the 20th century proved to be overwhelmingly the most violent, frightening and brutalized in history with fanatical, often genocidal warfare engulfing most societies between the outbreak of the First World War and the end of the Cold War.

What turned it into a bloodbath?

From the plains of Poland to the killing fields of Cambodia, Niall Ferguson reveals how economic boom-and-bust, decaying empires and - above all - poisonous ideas of race led men to treat each other as aliens. It was an age of hatred that ended with the twilight, not the triumph, of the West. And, he warns, it could happen all over again.
