Presenting a grand sweep of global history, the book contains concise and thought-provoking text summaries alongside maps, timelines and illustrations of the conflicts, rebellions, voyages and discoveries of our shared past.
In each of the fifty timelines, four fundamental categories of human endeavour - Politics & Economy, Science & Technology, Religion & Philosophy and Art & Architecture - pinpoint the most significant moments of political upheavel, artistic revolution and technological innovation as they happened simultaneously across vast distances.
A visual path through time is depicted through a diverse selection of art, while eight maps act as snapshots of our world undergoing great changes, including the parallels and connections between them. This original and insightful book provides a fresh perspective of appreciating the diverse timeline of events that have shaped world history.
