How long have humans been around When was the Bronze Age? Where did the first civilisations develop? What were the Spice Islands? Who was Kublai Khan? This book answers these questions and many more in a rapid journey through history from the Big Bang to the 21st century. To help readers put events places and empires into context the book includes 36 specially commissioned maps to accompany the text. The result is a history that is reassuringly epic in scope but refreshingly short in length an excellent place to start to bring your knowledge of world history up to scratch About the AuthorChristopher Lascelles studied modern languages and history at St Andrews University in Scotland. His experience living in Russia France Italy and India made him curious about how world history fits together in a bigger picture. Unable to find a simple and short world history he wrote A Short History of the World. He s currently writing his next book which is about the future and what it holds for the human race.
