Summary
The dawn of the twentieth century was forged in hope and optimism and tempered by an exaggerated sense of stability. The world was as it had been for centuries. Few could have imagined the magnitude of the changes that were about to overtake them. In a matter of decades, their world would be transformed by relentless political and technological revolution. From 1900 to the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, Age of Hope interviewees from Europe, Asia and the United States recound the part they played in the century's early history, whether fighting on the barricades of the failed Russian Revolution of 1905 or campaigning for votes for women. All remember the progress they lived through, the changes they fought for and the clash of forces and ideas before World War I
