José Luis Comellas
Ever since the times of revolutions that led from the Ancient to the New Regime until the midtwentieth century, one can sense homogeneity and a certain link to current times in the ideological, political, and socioeconomic spheres. This is called the Contemporary Age, which implies a new vital rhythm and some eagerness to aspire to new things, unlike the more peaceful temper that reigned in the Ancient Regime. The subsequent period is then appropriately called History of the contemporary world. This book’s most prominent feature is therefore the way it manages to narrate the last two centuries of history in a detailed and approachable way.
