"The year 1947 marks a turning point in the twentieth century. Peace with Germany becomes a tool to fortify the West against the threats of the Cold War. The CIA is created, Israel is about to be born, Simone de Beauvoir experiences the love of her life, an ill George Orwell is writing his last book, and Christian Dior creates the hyper-feminine New Look as women are forced out of jobs and back into the home."--Provided by publisher.

An unconventional, and effective, way of presenting history: following several people, some famous and some obscure, through this eventful year. The Swedish perspective is refreshing and the author's focus on worldwide fascism is illuminating. As a side benefit, it prompted me to check out Thelonius Monk. A good companion to more conventional histories such as Tony Judt's "Postwar."
