Praise

“It was formerly held that a comprehensive history of the last century would never be written, by virtue of the fact that we knew too much about that frenetic and eventful period. Now, with the era’s ink barely dry, John Higgs demolishes this assumption with a breathtakingly lucid and coherent map of the tectonic shifts which drastically reshaped the human psyche, and the human world, within a hundred thrilling, terrifying years … An illuminating work of massive insight, in Stranger Than We Can Imagine, John Higgs informs us of exactly where we’ve been and, by extension, where we are. I cannot recommend this magnificent work too highly.” —Alan Moore, author of V for Vendetta, Watchmen, and Lost Girls

“A beautiful, erudite, funny and enlightening tour of the widening boundaries of uncertainty revealed in the twentieth century, and who doesn’t need a book that explains quantum behaviour with a boxing bout between Putin and a kangaroo?” —Robin Ince
