Vividly written, this "scholarly examination . . . of the major events of the past" ("The Bookwatch") brings the outstanding breadth of scholarship and international scope of the larger "History of the World" within the grasp of every home, school, and library. Roberts brilliantly tells the story of the growing power of humans to remake the world and to control their destinies.
