Almanac of world history. (reprint, 2003)

Produced by a current and former editor for National Geographic, this volume presents a thematic treatment of world history intended to serve as a starting point for the general reader. Each article consists of a two-page spread that describes major milestones such as the evolution of writing, the emergence of colonialism, and the rise of democracy, or focus in on particular societies or major world events. Also included are "at a glance" articles presenting very brief entries on major wars, religions, leaders, scientists, philosophers, explorers, artists, and periods and movements. As is to be expected from a National Geographic publication, the volume includes numerous illustrations to accompany the text. This is a paperbound edition of a work first published in 2003.
