    Thanks for your feedback!

    An extremely readable overview of world history. The emphasis is on the big picture, and on themes rather than events. Thus there are sections on the rise of absolutism, the creation of European overseas empires, and the development of the scientific outlook. If you are looking for a chronology of events, this is not the book for you, but for those who want to understand how the world came to be the way it is, this book is superb.
