THE NEW YORK TIMES and AMAZON BEST-SELLER
“A clearly written, remarkably comprehensive guide to the greatest story on Earth – man’s journey from the earliest times to the modern day. Highly recommended” – Dan Jones, author of The Plantagenets: The Kings Who Made England
“Just what we all wanted but were too scared to ask for: everything that ever happened in one digestible, readable book” – Matt Ridley
There is an increasing realisation that our knowledge of world history – and how it all fits together – is far from perfect. A Short History of the World aims to fill the big gaps in our historical knowledge with a book that is easy to read and assumes little prior knowledge of past events.
The book does not aim to come up with groundbreaking new theories on why things occurred, but rather gives a broad overview of the generally accepted version of events so that non-historians will feel less ignorant when discussing the past.
While the book covers world history from the Big Bang to the present day, it principally covers key people, events and empires since the dawn of the first civilisations in around 3500 BC. To help readers put events, places and empires into context, the book includes 36 specially commissioned maps to accompany the text.
The result is a book that is reassuringly epic in scope but refreshingly short in length. An excellent place to start to bring your historical knowledge up to scratch. Once you have read this, you will never feel exposed again!

Britain’s most prolific known serial killer wasn’t a ripper or strangler. He was a licensed physician, bound in theory by the good medical practice guidelines of the General Medical Council established in 1858, making care of patients his “first concern” while “being open, honest, and acting with integrity.”
The “healer” nicknamed Doctor Death achieved none of those goals. But even knowing what he did, the question still remains: Why did he kill?
