Product description

You might think that after centuries of horrible history, the human race would learn to be all nice and fluffy and good. But no! Our last full century, the Twentieth Century, turned out to be the most horrific of the lot. Nuclear bombs, world wars, frightful flu epidemics – and hairy hippies trying to change it all. Get the full story, from the last days of the vile Victorian Queen right up to the nostalgic Nineties, with all the amazing changes and incredible inventions that happened in between! And while you’re at it, find out who shocked the world by showing her knickers, how two monkeys and a dog became astronauts, and why a posh London restaurant served stewed cat!
