Publishers Description: Following the success of his A Short History of the World , eminent historian Geoffrey Blainey has abridged his account of the grand adventure of human history to create an even more accessible version of his absorbing work. In doing so, he has produced a primer to world history that will become a must for every bookshelf. A Very Short History of the World traces the story of the world's people during the last four million years, beginning before the human race moved out of Africa to explore and settle other continents. It is a story of the inhabited world being pulled apart, and then coming together again in more recent centuries. A consummate storyteller, Professor Blainey makes the past come alive as he touches on the trivial and the grand: on changes in diet and daily work and sport, on transforming attitudes to the night sky, as well as on profound discoveries and mighty empires.
