    1913: The World before the Great War proposes a different and more expansive portrait of 1913, returning this world to its contemporary freshness. It brings key elements u the way it was ordered, its presumptions, its expectations for the future u back to life. It paints a coherent picture without skimming over differences, or ignoring contradictions. What emerges is unexpected: more richly patterned, more diverse and more outwardly secure. Through the stories of cities from Detroit to Bombay, Winnipeg to Durban, Tokyo to Algiers, Charles Emmerson reveals a year in which a truly global society was emerging for the first time in human history.
