Book Condition: Very Good


This book takes a sweeping new look at our global past. Our idea of world history is dominated by the ' Rise of the West" in which Europe's expansion and the emergence of America take center stage. John Darwin's elegantly written, magisterial account shows that the ascent of the west was neither foreordained nor a linear process. After Tamerlane unfolds the most famous and exciting events of world history, making them fresh and surprising once more. A good, clean and carefully read book.
