The author provides a tour de force of highlighting essential developements and central figures through the last 125 years, providing enough detail to illustrate his points, yet never overloading the reader. Dogget effortlessly zooms in and out between closer look and meta level, leaving you with a good grasp of the time period.
The only little snag is that the chapter titles were chosen to merely hint at their repective contents as opposed to clearly say what's being covered - which may be a nice twist in terms of writing style but can be a bit obstructive if one just wants to look up something or get a quick overview.
However, since this is not a text book but rather geared towards readers who more or less will be following through from beginning to end, this is a minor quibble.
PS. Am I really the first to ever review this great book??
