The full story of human endeavour - complete with its dramas, wars, schemes, discoveries, and personalities - is laid out before you in this illustrated guide to the history of our world.

Who were the Mongols, the Maya, or Isis? How far did the Roman or the British empire stretch? Why did apartheid or Communism begin, and what were the issues in the Vietnam War?

World History is your convenient reference, answering all your questions. But it also tells you why events happen and explains key issues. Its timelines trace events as they happen, from the appearance of the first humans in Africa to first civilisations and then on to recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the space race. It succinctly explains how one event led to another, and sums up topics that include ancient Egypt, the Romans, the Renaissance, World Wars I and II, slavery and empire, and Communist China.

Dotted throughout this comprehensive volume are sumptous images that reveal historical world treasures, such as the 16,000-year old cave paintings at Lascaux, Machu Picchu, and the Taj Mahal.

With wide coverage of the world's civilisations, events, ideas, and discoveries, World History is both an essential reference and a fascinating read.

“What was the other review on about???”

I have no idea why the other reviewer was so harsh - so what if Wales isn't in the index? This is a concise book about WORLD HISTORY, not Welsh or even British history, and Wales isn't all that rich in terms... More
