The No-Nonsense Guide to World History

by Chris Brazier - £6.99  New Internationalist (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781904456476 | ISBN 10: 1904456472

Most people's knowledge of world history is hazy and incomplete at best. We know bits without always understanding how they fit together. This No-Nonsense Guide gives a full picture, revealing what's hidden by conventional textbooks - from the civilizations of Africa, Asia and Latin America to the history of women, submerged between accounts of politics and war.
By looking at history in its entirety we see the interconnections in our past and the contexts of conventional historical narratives. This new edition is fully updated and revised to include a section on how the key issues of the 21st century - climate change, 9/11, the Iraq war, corporate power - fit into the broader patterns of world history.
