The National Geographic Concise History Of The World

This is the book by National Geographic that provides a concise yet comprehensive sweep of history. Advised by seven historical scholars, and replete with hundreds of color images, maps, and quick-reading sidebars, the book divides the past into eight eras. Four 500-year eras cover Prehistory, the Classical Age, the power of religion, and societal advances until the year 1500, while the remaining four eras span the rise of empires, revolutions, and global conflicts until the Modern Age. Each era's comparative timeline traces the political, geographic, cultural, technological, and social course of history across four distinct world regions. Easily digestible milestone dates allow you to note that while William the Conqueror's Doomsday Book was completed in 1086, Chinese polymath Shen Gua was near to completing Dream Pool Essays. Hardcover; 416 pages. 11 1/4" H x 9 1/2" W x 1 1/4" D. (4 1/4 lbs.)
