Want to know more about global history? This concise guide explains in clear detail all the major players and events that have made the world what it is today. Covering the entirety of human history, this comprehensive resource highlights important developments in everything from religion and science to art and war — giving you an understanding of how the 21st-century world came to be.

Find strength in numbers — trace the growth from ancient civilizations to today's global community and discover what makes societies succeed or fail
