Our History of the 20th Century

As Told in Diaries, Journals and Letters

Ed. Travis Elborough

From Queen Victoria’s journal entry for 1 January 1900 (‘full of anxiety & fear of what may be before us!’), to MP Oona King’s lament at spending the end of the millennium in a queue, Elborough’s compilation presents personal, contemporary and candid responses to world history as it happened. The book features over 100 diarists and provides one or more writers’ reaction to every major event or trend, whether a world war, the 1975 Europe Referendum or the latest Star Wars movie.
