Viewing world history through the same lens as Howard Zinn's iconic examination of U.S. history, the author presents a fiery narrative of how ordinary men and women were involved in creating and changing society and how conflict between social classes often formed the core of these changes.
The book divides human history into seven eras, from the Stone Age to the end of the 20th century, devoting chapters to topics such as the Neolithic "revolution," Byzantium, slavery and racism, the Enlightenment, the Paris Commune, and the Cold War. Chronologies of major events preface each chapter, while lists of further reading close the book.
