Abstract:

"It's hard to believe it, but it's been ten years since we said goodbye to the twentieth century. And with the ending of the first decade of the new millennium, it's only natural to take stock of all that has happened since New Year's Eve 1999. The world has never been smaller, faster, or more volatile than it was during the last decade--but what do all of these changes mean? How have they impacted our day-to-day lives? Here, James Sutherland explains it all, breaking down the decade's most significant events year by year, from the 2000 presidential election recount to the rise of globalization to the advent of Twitter ... and almost everything in between"--Page 2 of cover.
