Contemporary newspaper reports and eyewitness accounts guide students through major events in the 20th century in this decade-by-decade series. Titles feature the most important world and U.S. events of each decade, ranging from politics and disasters to pop culture that changed the way we think. The causes and consequences are examined up to the present day, giving the reader context for how events of past decades affect happenings today.

Grade 5-8–Adapted from British titles, each of the books in this set includes 21 spreads covering events that occurred or began on specific dates. Topics are international in perspective and include politics, music, wars, technology, science, and famous people. The first 18 overviews are in chronological order, but the last 3 are out of order and appear to have been added for American appeal. All have primary-source excerpts, in-text further readings lists, and average-quality photos. The confusing format and sometimes obscure topics (The Louvre 'Pyramid' Opens in 1980s, Biafra Breaks Away from Nigeria in 1960s) make this set of little value to most U.S. readers.
