A Short History of Asia: Stone Age to 2000 AD

A Short History of Asia: Stone Age to 2000 AD Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Designed to be readable above all else to those without prior knowledge of the subject, Colin Mason presents a gripping and comprehensive account of civilizations which had credit banking, mass production industries, and whole libraries of printed books while Europe was still primitive. It stresses in particular the pre-colonial period, taking a critical look at imperialism. Its chapters on the modern states are enlivened by the personal experience of the author, who has lived and worked in almost all of them.

About the Author

Colin Mason is a former foreign correspondent, broadcaster, diplomat and parliamentarian.
