A Short History Of The World
“The story of our world is a story that is still
very imperfectly known.”
From the very beginnings of life, spanning across the age of mammals evolving into monkeys, apes and sub-men;
from the Neanderthaler to the early days of human adventure;
from the beginnings of cultivations to priests, sages, kings and wars; and
from the conquests to material knowledge, revolutions and reconstruction of the world..
here is a story of how life began and evolved into ‘us.’
A comprehensive and compelling account of the world history, H. G. Wells’ a Short History of the World is a thought-provoking masterpiece. Constructed on an evolutionary, anthropological and sociological basis, it is an immensely popular period piece that remains one of the most readable of its kind.
