The No-Nonsense Guide to World History

Embraces the whole of history, rather than disconnected dynasties and events - all in one slim volume.

"Never has so much been explained in so few words. The great volume of history can be daunting if you want to understand the big picture. Here at last you can read the whole story in just one small gem of a book. Give it to everyone you know. Education education education!" - Amazon 5-Star Customer Review

Embraces the whole of history, rather than disconnected dynasties and events - all in one slim volume. Who was the first black queen? How much do you know about China's history? Most people's knowledge of world history is hazy and incomplete at best.

This No-Nonsense Guide gives a full picture, revealing the hidden histories and communities left out of conventional textbooks , from the civilizations of Africa, Asia and Latin America to the history of women. This updated and revised edition includes a new chapter from the perspective of the end of the first decade of the 21st century and includes material on the financial crisis and the world response to climate change.

About the Author: Chris Brazier has been co-editor at New Internationalist magazine since 1984. Previous publications include Vietnam: The Price of Peace and Raging Against the Machine (editor). He is also principal writer for UNICEF’s The State of the World’s Children report.
