A History Of The Last Thousand YearsBook - 1995
Reviews the global history of the last 1,000 years as a visitor from the future would see it, beginning and ending in East Asia and considering European and American dominance as temporary. Fernandez-Armesto (history, U. of Oxford) uses small details of the human experience to convey broad historical changes, and gives less attention to well-documented historical eras such as Elizabethan England in favor of periods not usually covered, such as events in Makassar and Timbuktu. Includes some 400 bandw photos and illustrations. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
