There-is-an-increasing-realisation-that-our-knowledge-of-world-history-–-and-how-it-all-fits-together-–-is-far-from-perfect.-A-Short-History-of-the-World-aims-to-fill-the-big-gaps-in-our-historical-knowledge-with-a-book-that-is-easy-to-read-and-assumes-little-prior-knowledge-of-past-events.

The-book-does-not-aim-to-come-up-with-groundbreaking-new-theories-on-why-things-occurred,-but-rather-gives-a-broad-overview-of-the-generally-accepted-version-of-events-so-that-non-historians-will-feel-less-ignorant-when-discussing-the-past.

While-the-book-covers-world-history-from-the-Big-Bang-to-the-present-day,-it-principally-covers-key-people,-events-and-empires-since-the-dawn-of-the-first-civilisations-in-around-3500-BC.-To-help-readers-put-events,-places-and-empires-into-context,-the-book-includes-36-specially-commissioned-maps-to-accompany-the-text.

The-result-is-a-book-that-is-reassuringly-epic-in-scope-but-refreshingly-short-in-length.-An-excellent-place-to-start-to-bring-your-historical-knowledge-up-to-scratch.-Once-you-have-read-this,-you-will-never-feel-exposed-again!
