Based on the much-acclaimed The Times Complete History of the World, this authoritative history covers the whole story of humankind from its origins to the global economy and environment of today in 80 double-page spreads of text, maps and pictures. The Concise History avoids a Eurocentric approach, offering a worldwide view of history emphasizing change, expansion and contraction, and aiming to provide 'a sense of the past as a continuing process'. No jacket.
