From the emergence of hominids millions of years ago, up to the present day, this book is a huge compilation of facts, features, and images covering all aspects of human history.
The History of the World records significant world events, presented as chronologically listed entries, running across the base of each spread. Subjects covered include wars, scientific discoveries, art and architecture, births and deaths of famous people, and other major milestones. Juxtaposed with this timeline, are narratives and features on broader aspects of history, for example, 'Early Civilizations 5000 – 1500 BCE' describes the Egyptian and Minoan civilizations. Box features also take a closer look at Egyptian Pyramids and a Neolithic Scottish settlement, dating from the same period.
The well-organised presentation of such a vast subject, illustrated by hundreds of photographs, maps, and illustrations, makes The History of the World a comprehensive first-stop reference book for lay readers as well as students.
