Overview

TRAGEDY AND HOPE shows the years 1895-1950 as a period of transition from the world dominated by Europe in the nineteenth century to the world of three blocs in the twentieth century. With clarity, perspective, and cumulative impact, Professor Quigley examines the nature of that transition through two world wars and a worldwide economic depression. As an interpretative historian, he tries to show each event in the full complexity of its historical context. The result is a unique work, notable in several ways. It gives a picture of the world in terms of the influence of different cultures and outlooks upon each other; it shows, more completely than in any similar work, the influence of science and technology on human life; and it explains, with unprecedented clarity, how the intricate financial and commercial patterns of the West prior to 1914 influenced the development of today's world.

    A truly amazing book -- A must-read.

    If you are looking for an in-depth overview of the factors associated with the development of the seats of power in the western world during the roughly 150 years until 1962, you must read this book. Quigley prefaces with an apology for the brevity of the 1300 plus pages and all he was compelled by the publisher to prune out, saying that the publisher believed nobody would buy the book if it was bigger. Tragedy and Hope is rare in scope. It is concise and insightful, from a scholar of uncanny academic credentials. You won't be disappointed.

    Best non-fiction book ever written

    Every person on the planet should have to read this book. However, I would settle for every member of US & State government.
