While proof reading a truly terrible paper my mind began to stray. My co-worker accused me of procrastination when I attempted to engage him in a conversation about the length of the 20th century.


But then he did engage with me. While technically 100 years, of course, the main narrative of the 20th century has to be WWI, WWII, the cold war, so it runs 1914-1991. This could be compared with the very long 19th century, with the main narrative in Europe of industrialisation and liberalism, running from the American revolution/French revolution to the twilight years before WWI.
