MILLENNIUM: A History of Our Last Thousand Years

£6.99

Product description

The year 2000 approaches. The chance we have now to look back and take stock will be unrepeatable for another thousand years. Millennium sweeps the past and scans the prospects to present an unprecedented vision of genuinely global history.

Felipe Fernndez-Armesto's Millennium is a new initiative in narrative history, viewing the current millennium as it draws to a close as from the future- it sweeps the past and scans the prospects to present an unprecedented vision of genuinely global history. The evidence of what this thousand years represents is explored with more intricacy and intimacy than has ever been attempted in a work of this scale, with the help of perfectly chosen details culled from the bric a brac of the past to illuminate the slow but visible tide of history as it sweeps over the course of a millennium. With its vivid writing and hundreds of illustrations, Millennium is a classic of popular history- one of the few books which has relevance for the present as well as enduring interest.

Book is in very good condition consistent with age.
