Delivers the story in surprising depth, covering the many centuries of experiences with authority and no bias, 28 Nov. 2013
It's an ongoing story delivered in a masterly not-too-intellectual way. It takes you into horrors and also
celebrations making geographical and historical connections which will surprise you, outstripping the
knowledge and judgements on the subject you may have retained from your own education. In short
it is an important contribution to general human understanding.
