THE NO-NONSENSE GUIDE TO WORLD HISTORY
Written much in the vein of historian Howard Zinn, this chronicle hits all the major points, yet also finds space for the unsung and underplayed, including women’s roles in history and the civilizations of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Includes a chapter on how key 21st-century issues (climate change, 9/11, and corporate power) fit into history’s broader patterns. A concluding chronology marks time with some of the most important dates in human history.
