Welcome to the Twenty-first Century
More Absurdities of Our TimeBook - 1999
Here is a second humorous look back at the follies, foibles and fads of the twentieth century. Canada's pre-eminent popular historian lampoons the monarchy, the movies, and everything in between. Berton even ventures a look beyond to the upcoming century, when in 2021, Chicago and New York launch the first 22-lane highways: designed for a speed limit of 100 mph, traffic is so congested the limit has to be readjusted--to 15 mph. Following the amazing success ofA Farewell to the Twentieth Century, Pierre Berton knows just what will tickle the funny bones of his fans.
