5.0 out of 5 stars What they didn't teach you at school! 22 Nov 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading the excellent Seeds of Change: Six Plants That Transformed Mankind and Seeds of Wealth: Five Plants That Made Men Rich, this was a "must-buy". Henry Hobhouse presents a view of the last 500 years of history and how it was shaped by three natural forces: population growth, food supply and disease. Thoroughly researched with notes at the back to explain some points further without necessarily interrupting the flow of the main narrative, this will get you gripped.

The information is very interesting but the sequencing is difficult to follow.

His approach to understanding what influences change is unique.
