5.0 out of 5 stars
history as it should be, 15 May 2009
this is a book with a sweeping subject both geographically and timevise,
but it manages to give the reader a remarkably detailed sense of its subject while being both an easy read and interesting.
for everybody but an expert this will greatly enhance your understanding of how it all fits together.
And how geography, culture, technology and history interacted in this time and place to lay the foundation of the modern world
