Editorial Reviews

Our 20th Century is a three-hour, two cassette audiobook presenting a survey of the twentieth century in terms of the personalities and events that marked it's exceptional ten decades. Included are historic broadcasts by veteran journalists Walter Cronkite and Dan Rather. Here is a unique historical record as presented through radio and television broadcasts from Edward R. Murrow's first-hand account of the liberation of Buchenwald, to Dan Rather's wartime journalism in Vietnam, to Walter Cronkite's reporting of the Kennedy Assassination and the first Moon walk. Here also are interviews with history-making personalities such as President Bill Clinton, astronaut and U.S. Senator John Glenn, singer Tony Bennett, as well as actress and ambassador Shirley Temple Black. Splendidly produced and drawing from CBS journalism resources, Our 20th Century is an outstanding recommendation for personal, school, and community library non-fiction audiobook collections.
