By Adam Tooze
L. a. Gran Guerra de 1914-1918 transformó por completo el mundo en que vivimos, arruinando l. a. estabilidad que los grandes imperios de Eurasia habían mantenido desde los angeles edad media. Adam Tooze ha emprendido en este libro los angeles ambiciosa tarea de analizar estas transformaciones, en un recorrido que parte de los campos de batalla y nos lleva hasta los angeles Gran Depresión de los años treinta. El primer culpable de que se perdiera esta oportunidad de asentar una paz duradera fueron los Estados Unidos, que habiendo alcanzado un grado de poder nunca conocido en los angeles historia, fueron responsables de que se firmara una «paz sin victoria», y se desentendieron después de sus consecuencias. Pero no fueron los únicos; Tooze integra en su relato las revoluciones de Rusia y de China, los angeles desastrosa política de Francia y Gran Bretaña o el desmoronamiento de l. a. Alemania de Weimar en un libro que, en opinión de Max Hastings, lo acredita como «un bold cronista de una época the most important de nuestra historia».

Beyond the two vehicles, less than a quarter of a mile distant, were the first low-lying stone buildings of Qamishli. They were misty gray shapes rippled in the radiant heat of the burning afternoon. Ibrahim, Mahmoud, and their two companions emerged from their car. As they walked ahead, a 707 came in low headed for a landing at the nearby airport. The noise of the engines rumbled loud and long across the flat wasteland. As Ibrahim and his party approached, three men emerged from the Cadillac, four from the Dodge.
He moved it from side to side. "Okay," he said, and let the hand drop over the side of the car door. At that instant, Ibrahim and the passengers in the front two cars leaned out the windows, popped the tops on the palm-sized cylinders, and threw them at the booth. While the small guard reached for his pistol, the other opened fire through the thick, orange smoke. As he did, Walid threw his car into reverse, crashed through the gate, and rammed the booth. The outpost shook and the shooting stopped, but only for a moment.
