History Makers: 100 Most Influential People of the Twentieth Century
Bob Dylan, Marie Curie, Bill Gates, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King … who was more influential in the history of the twentieth century?
History Makers profiles the 100 people whose legacies burn brightest in the history of the last century – from the greatest scientists to the boldest political leaders and intellectuals – and ranks them in order of their influence. Their achievements are placed in the context of their times and illuminating insights are offered into their inimitable genius. Drawn from all fields of endeavour, those featured fall into five main categories: Politics and Leadership, Science and Technology, Popular Culture and the Arts, Business and Commerce, and Knowledge and Philosophy.
Counting down from 100 to 1, History Makers uses a specially devised mathematical formula to reveal who the most influential person of the twentieth century was – and why.
