Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the Stone Age to the Space Age—an entertaining journey through our own story that asks not just how we got here, but also, where are we going? In this thrilling introduction to the big ideas in history combining the latest research in history and archaeology, Aydon tells the story of our species from our origin in Africa to the development of technology, detailing the rise of nations and empires, and the evolution of culture from cave painting to the Internet. Packed with fascinating facts and insights, the book also looks to the future and asks if the crisis of climate change is one challenge too far for humans.
