Week by week, every single week since March 1923, Time magazine has captured history in its flight. The result, after seven decades, is an unsurpassed chronicle of the sweeping forces and great events of the 20th century. Now the editors of Time have collected their reporting on the most memorable individuals of our era in this volume. Great People Of The 20th Century, introduced with a special essay by veteran Time writer Lance Morrow, and including a complete index for ready reference, the book brims with insights into the life and times of an unforgettable gallery of men and women. They are all here: the diplomats and the warriors, the scientists and the moguls, the explorers who surprised us and the artists who moved us.
