From Prehistory to the civil war in Syria, know the remarkable episodes of human history, presented in this work in simple and uncomplicated language along a timeline that aims to facilitate understanding of the issues addressed.
The content records significant world events, presented as chronologically listed entries, running across the bottom of each spread. Juxtaposed with the timeline, on the same spread, are narratives and features on broader aspects of history. Covered are wars, scientific discoveries, art and architecture, births, deaths, and other major milestones.
This well organised presentation of such a broad subject, complemented by hundreds of photographs and colourful illustrations, transforms The History of the World in to a comprehensive work that serves as a handy reference to both lay readers and students alike.
