Description: A concise and conveniently sized new edition of Robert's acclaimed History oft the World
-- The same exceptional breadth and depth of the larger edition, at a remarkably affordable price
-- Global and international in scope, ranging from prehistory to the political hot spots of today's world
-- Weaves together the threads of intellectual, economic, cultural, and political history in an exciting narrative

When Oxford published J.M. Robert's History of the World in 1994, it was immediately acclaimed as a classic. Writing in the Observer, A.J.P. Taylor called it "a stupendous achievement...the unrivalled world history of our day". The Christian Science Monitor greeted it as a "landmark book....Highly readable...intelligently organized, insightful, and balanced". And The Sunday Telegraph declared, "There is nothing better of its kind".

Oxford now presents the new, conveniently-sized and affordable A Short History of the World. Vividly written, it 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. Completely up to date and comprehensive yet succinct, it accompanies readers on an amazing journey from the first appearance of the species Homo sapiens up to the bloodshed in the former Yugoslavia and the latest chapter in the exploration of space. Surveying the major events, developments, and personalities that have shaped the civilazations of the world, from the arts, politics, and religion to scientific and technical breakthroughs, Roberts carefully ties in economic changes -- such as trade routes and developments in agriculture and manufacturing -- making clear theirimportance for the history of politics and changing societies. Throughout, he brilliantly tells the story of the growing power of humans to remake their world and control their own destiny. Effortlessly drawing together the great themes of civilization with details from everyday life, he brings readers face to face with the exciting, dramatic, often tragic story that is the history of the world.

Following in the international success of Robert's History of the World, A Short History of the World is an indispensable reference that will inform, enlighten, and entertain readers for many years to come.
