A SHORT HISTORY OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
The great themes woven through John Lukacs's spirited, concise history of the twentieth century are inseparable from the author's own intellectual preoccupations: the fading of liberalism, the rise of populism and nationalism, the achievements and dangers of technology, the continuing democratization of the globe, and the limitations of knowledge.
John Lukacs is a historian and the author of more than thirty books, including Five Days in London, The Future of History, and The Legacy of the Second World War. A former professor of history at Chestnut Hill College, he has served as a visiting professor at Johns Hopkins University, Columbia University, Princeton University, and La Salle University, among other institutions. With acting credits that span stage and screen, Gildart Jackson is most often recognized for his role as Gideon on Charmed. Other notable TV roles include Jackson Palmer on Providence and Simon Prentiss on General Hospital, as well as guest appearances on Stargate: Atlantis, Las Vegas, and CSI. Theater roles include Trigorin in The Seagull, Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady, and Adrian in Private Eyes at the Old Globe.
