A Brief History of Quantum Mechanics
The decades from the outbreak of the First World War to the aftermath of the second, were an Age of Catastrophe for this society [...] shaken by two world wars, followed by two waves of global rebellion and revolution [...]. The huge colonial empires, built up before and during the Age of the Empire, were shaken, and crumbled to dust. A world economic crisis of unprecedented depth brought even the strongest capitalistic economies to their knees and seemed to reverse the creation of a single universal world economy, which had been so remarkable an achievement of nineteenth-century liberal capitalism. Even the USA, safe from war and revolution, seemed close to collapse. While the economy tottered, the institutions of liberal democracy virtually disappeared between 1917 and 1942 from all but a fringe of Europe and parts of North America and Australasia, as Fascism and its satellite authoritarian movements and regimes advanced.
