The book is a library book from Devon, I hope they are not missing it. Seems to me this should be specified in the advert rather than having it as a surprise, I am unhappy and uncomfortable with the explanation that they bought the book from the library
This is a wide ranging book with some interesting ideas.Some areas are rather sketchy but it is readable and approachable. He bids us to be realistic and learn from history not only of the twentieth century as the future looks alarming. Worth reading!
The Square and the Tower is an excellent book written by historian and writer Niall Ferguson about networks and hierarchies. The books discusses how features of networks and hierarchies relate to history, including the writing of history. A stimulating read.
