Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0540077178, Paperback)

The establishment of cities, agricultural advances, technological breakthroughs, artistic triumphs, political and military turmoil, and geographic upheavals--to understand world history, you have to understand these crucial shifts, because they all had an impact on the way society developed. Vibrant and plentiful illustrations, photographs, maps, and diagrams, plus side-by-side timelines, highlight the most exciting and momentous historical events in Asia and Australasia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas. Moving from 15,000 BCE to the dawn of the third millennium, chart the progress made in science and culture. Quotations from eminent figures offer compelling views of events from their own time, and 1,500 biographies of international luminaries include writers, scientists, and artists. From the end of the ice age to the discovery of quarks, the significance of each moment becomes brilliantly clear and meaningful.
