This new edition sees the most far-reaching and dramatic changes yet. Every spread has been redesigned and rewritten, every map and chart extensively reviewed and updated.

The result is a work unequalled in its authority, quality and imagination, a masterly overview of the endlessly absorbing story of humanity.
