From the bestselling author of Modern Times, A History of the Jews, and Intellectuals, a provocative, challenging, and readable history of 15 years that laid the foundations of the modern world. The period after Waterloo (1815-1830), traditionally viewed as an Age of Reaction, was astonishly fertile in new ideas and, Johnson maintains, the modern world. 16 pages of halftones.
