Evans Brothers, 2003 - History, Modern - 48 pages
While the ending of the Cold War removed the nuclear threat, horrific civil conflict in Yugoslavia, Rwanda and Afghanistan bought death and misery to millions. The West's prosperity continued to grow whilst economies crashed in East Asia, and in the decade that saw information technology connecting people globally as never before, governments were unable to agree on how to act together to protect the environment. The 1990s were a decade of vivid contrasts. This title uses headlining events and people to explore international and national current affairs taking in such diverse aspects of life as war, politics, sport and fashion, chronologically describing the memorable events of this decade in clear and concise language.
