The Other Side of History: A unique view of momentous events from the last 60 years

Author(s): Simon Maier
ISBN: 978 981 4771 37 5


History is more than facts and figures, people and places, wars and politics, deaths and disasters. Stories are never fixed in stone; they continue to morph and evolve with every retelling. In this book, history is told through a fictional hotelier based in different cities around the world. As the narrator chronicles key events of the 20th and 21st centuries, he provides details of the atmosphere, and recounts tales from people on the ground, along with sketches of the mood and beliefs of the time. Such details infuse the biggest and most important occasions of modern times with insight, precision and warmth. This book is a fascinating mix of fact and fiction; of what did happen and what might have happened.
