From the Publisher
Just 50,000 years ago, our hunter-gatherer ancestors ventured off
the African savannah and into the wider world. Now, our technology
reaches far out into the cosmos. How did we get to where we are
With lively text and colorful illustrations, From Then to
Now explains how individual societies struggled to find
their own paths, despite war, disease, slavery, natural disasters,
and the relentless growth of human knowledge. From Hammurabi to
Henry Ford, from Incan couriers to the Internet, from the Taj Mahal
to the Eiffel Tower, from Marco Polo to Martin Luther King, from
Cleopatra to Catherine the Great, from boiled haggis to fried
tarantulas - this is no less than the story of humanity. It's the
story of how we grew apart over all those years of migration and
division, and how - as we recognize our common heritage and our
often mixed ancestry - we can come together.
An index, maps, and notes make this a must-have reference, as well
as a delight to read and to discuss. From Then to
Now is bound to create a generation of history buffs!
