Abstract:

Every turn of a page in The New York Times The 20th Century will catapult you into the front page coverage -- and continuation of the lead story to its conclusion -- of the major events of the century that closed a millennium. From the monarch's death that ended the Victorian Age, through two World Wars, men landing on the moon, the first heart transplant and test tube baby, the end of Russian communism and the deciphering of the human genome, the dichotomy of outrageous tragedy and astonishing achievement is presented with an unflinching eye by the reporters of The New York Times. Readers will relive history with a fresh "breaking news" immediacy as they experience memorable events in the same words that introduced and explained them to the world at the very time they happened. Advertisements appearing in the pages of the paper through the years further reflect the pulse of American life through a century of change. Natural disasters, revolutions, assassinations, celebrations, and an ever-present sense of human hope in the future can be found in these pages.
