'The more one knows about our early history as hunter-gatherers and our long history as farmers, and then about the dizzying acceleration of world trade and industry that has taken us into modern times, the less mysterious today's world seems'. Andrew Marr's popular history of the world starts around 70,000 years ago and surveys cultures that have failed and vanished as well as the origins of modern superpowers, and finds surprising echoes and parallels across vast distances and epochs. Off-mint.
