Summary From 9/11 to the launch of the iPod, from the creation of Gmail to the 2004 tsunami, from the Enron bankruptcy to the killing of Osama bin Laden, 10 Years That Shook the World is the story of an extraordinary decade. For each year, Loretta Napoleoni presents events not as a chronology but as dispatches from the worlds collective memory. Topics like politics, economics, celebrities, and the environment intersect and converge to reveal the accelerating pace of globalisation and the changes that have affected us all
