Product Description:

This volume covers the history of the world, from the beginning through modern times (into the 21st century). While not an in-depth view, it covers all time periods and shows readers what was happening in all regions of the world. All events of note are included with brief write-ups and lots of photographs, paintings, and pictures. The text is very readable, and every page is eye-catching with full color examples of tools, weapons, historical sites, and more. Timelines are included showing events from around the world happening at concurrent times. Republished by My Father's World (with permission of DK), the first two chapters, Introduction to Human History (570MYA-40,000) and Early People (40,000-5000BC), have been removed to make it more Christian-friendly. Following chapters cover the First Civilizations (5000-1200BC), Traders and Warriors (1200-500BC), Growth of Empires (500BC-AD1), Decline of the Ancient World (1-400), Religious Worlds (400-800), New Nations (800-1000), Monks and Invaders (1000-1200), Conquest and Plague (1200-1400), Expansion of Knowledge (1400-1500), Great Rulers (1500-1600), Commerce and Colonies (1600-1700), Age of Inquiry (1700-1750), Age of Revolution (1750-1800), Independence and Industry (1800-1850), Rise of Nationalism (1850-1900), World Goes to War (1900-1919), Peace and War (1919-1946), and One World (1946-2000s). Christianity is introduced with major events like the Exodus, Christ's crucifixion and such being discussed (although usually introduced as stories with no historical evidence). Overall, this is a good look at the entire world as it has grown and changed from ancient times until today, full of fascinating facts waiting to be discovered. ~ Megan
