History involves the actions and experiences of many nations, but history books are mostly written from the perspective of one. But how do different countries view their pasts? This is the first book to gather historians from 28 states - including the USA, China, Russia India, Turkey and Iran - to relate their own national stories. With 202 illustrations, this original and thought-provoking volume provides a rare insight into the cultural and political differences that both endanger and enliven our world.
