It not only provides a year-by-year listing of the key events of human history from the city-states of ancient Mesopotamia to the globalized, post-millennial world of today, but also sets those events in a broad historical context, thereby offering an enhanced understanding not just of how but of why the world has changed and developed over six thousand years."--BOOK JACKET.
