Divided into seven chapters by epoch, this compact volume traces history from the beginnings of mankind until today. Each double-page summarises the most important historical and cultural events — organized by region and era. Special boxes provide background information about the cultural, religious and social aspects that influenced the course of history. Additionally, biographies introduce individuals whose lives still inspire the imagination today. A timeline lists the events dealt with on each double-page and points to parallel developments that are explained elsewhere in the book. Numerous illustrations help underlining the textual content.
