Description
Information
First published in 1922, A Short History of the World has become a classic of its kind. In his distinctive prose H. G. Wells tells the story of the planet from its geological beginnings to the First World War, a seemingly daunting feat, but one which his storytelling and journalistic skills transform in to a work that is not only accessible, but readable, radical and funny. Wells's liberal world-view and profound concern with the importance of ideas in history give this work an urgency and vigour that makes it as fresh today as when it was first published.
