Item Description...
Marked by two world wars, the Holocaust, and a host of violent conflicts, genocides, and violent revolutions, the twentieth century has been the most explosive and destructive in human history. As we enter the twenty-first century, it is vital that we understand what went wrong in the preceding hundred years. This book, the first of a two-volume work by historian Edward Kantowicz, provides an engaging narrative that chronicles the events, people, and ideas driving the world's social and political course in the twentieth century. The Rage of Nations covers the landmark events from 1900 through the Second World War: the Russo-Japanese War, the global repercussions of World War I, the Russian Revolution, the Great Depression, Mussolini's fascism, Hitler's nazism, Stalin's socialism, the Spanish Civil War, the China of Mao and Chiang Kai-shek, World War II, the development of the atomic bomb, and more. In addition, Kantowicz probes behind the events themselves, examining their source in the five terrible "isms" of the twentieth century-anarchism, socialism, imperialism, nationalism, and ethnocentrism. Providing compelling, often disconcerting reading, The Rage of Nations will help us make sense of what is happening in the world today by considering important lessons from our recent past.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
American role totally absent  Jan 6, 2002
This is certainly a well-written and thought-inspiring book. However, the implications of the book, if there is any, seems questionable.

Throughout the book the author is enumerating how other nations, the Germans, Russians, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Hindi, Spanish, Arabs, Israelites, etc., are undeniably responsible for so many ism's and turmoils in the past century. Strangely the Americans, the most important character in the 20th century drama, who had played a critical role in moulding the world order and also benefitted most from it the 20th century, are not discussed in an individual chapter. The keyword of the whole book, rage and ism's, seem not applicable to the Americans. This is unfair to the the listed nations as well as to the Americans. It occurs to me that the author is trying to hypothesize American moral superiority: we're immune to these ism's, and bear no responsibility for the chaos in the past century.

What I'm expecting there is a second volume of the book to enable the author to detail the American role before and after WWII. What are the Americans? The only angels, pacifists, aliens, or supermen who worked with God to save mankind, or just another nation who should bear its due responsibility for this "cruel, cruel world". What did they do in the past century. Have the Americans alone built world order, but all the other nations simply added to the turmoils and war atrocities? Or, the present world order is the joint efforts of all nations including the Germans, the Russians, etc.? I hope the author can give me an answer.

 
Excellent Reading!  Apr 10, 2000
I've always enjoyed history, so picking up this book to read was in my plans all along. Still, once I started reading, I was not disappointed in the book or in the author's quality of writing. The information is presented in a clear, well written manner and the author does a great job in offering a book for readers like myself just interested in reading of historical events and not necessarily studying for a class.
