This is an entertaining, easily readable history of ten major world empires that dominated human history. The book ranges from the Akkadian empire dating from around 2300 BC, initially ruled by the great leader Sargon, to the more contemporary empires of Britain, Russia, and America. The author, Paul Strathern, weaves an interesting tale of birth and decline of empire after empire. He is good at pointing out both the good and bad aspects of each empire as it emerged and spread it's influence across the known world. Some empires incorporated and built on the wisdom and learning of previous empires, while others tried to wipe all vestiges of previous empires from the earth. There are lessons we should all learn written in the dust of the past. ( )
