No-Nonsense Guide to World History
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
What are the hidden stories and communities left out of conventional history textbooks? The No-Nonsense Guide to World History brings the reader along on a broad trip through time, across continents, and among cultures. It offers a big-picture view of history, and in so doing, points out the interconnections in our past and the contexts for familiar historical narratives.
This revised edition includes a section on how the key issues of the twenty-first century – climate change, 9/11, the war in Iraq, corporate power, China's rapid growth – fit into the broader patterns of world history.
