Ght of new research and discoveries such as the revolution in our understanding of many civilizations in the Ancient World The closing sections of the book reflect what now seems to be the inexorable rise of Asia and the increasingly troubled situation in the We. An exceptional book to be used as a general guide to the history of civilization and even before It is massive and I ve read it two times from beginning to end which took a few months I look forward to reading the latest edition Many great historical events are merely mentioned but it acts as a catalyst or for me an inspiration to research one of these events further It should be essential reading in school except for religious groups who will not want to read this as they have their own books of fiction This sets a clear timeline for our evolution and development as a species and will spur on discovery for your own area of expertise
