Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

E. H. Gombrichs world history, an international bestseller now available in English for the first time, is a text dominated not by dates and facts but by the sweep of experience across the centuries, a guide to humanitys achievements, and an acute witness to its frailties.

In forty concise chapters, Gombrich tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the atomic bomb. In between emerges a colorful picture of wars and conquests, grand works of art, and the spread and limitations of science. The product of a generous and humane sensibility, this timeless account makes intelligible the full span of human history for the curious of all ages.
