Rate this:
Combining stunning images with compelling ancient and medieval writings, this reference reasons that European history was determined by Asian history and that Asian nomads, who colonized Europe, evolved to make Western civilization unique and successful. With a lively narrative, this account surveys the world since Old Testament times and offers surprising insights, including reappraisals of the historic roles of Chinese bureaucrats, Greek cities, Christian explorers, and the Dieppe maps, which spark arguments about Australia's discovery. Outstanding maps from the State Library of Victoria Collection beautifully complement this exploration.
