Tragedy and Hope

Tragedy and Hope Genre: history
Annotation:
'Tragedy and Hope' is a sprawling history of the world during approximately the period 1890-1960. If one is looking for the details of some half-forgotten international incident during this period, he is likely to find them somewhere in this book. Reading 'Tragedy and Hope' is a good refresher course for anyone wishing to understand twentieth-century history, especially the two World Wars, the events leading up to them, and their consequences. Well Professor Quigley, Bill Clinton's former mentor history professor was on the 'inside' and for a generation he taught the future elite leaders at the Jesuit Georgetown University. He was obscure to the public until 1992 when Bill Clinton paid fond tribute to him in his nomination acceptance speech. Quigley then, 15 years after his death, became instantly world famous, and his brilliant works, especially this one, always intended to be largely secret and in low circulation, began to be scrutinized by people everywhere. The result? This book is not speculative but authoritative and is written in a powerful compelling style, and relevant.
