A Little History of the World
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: January 2006
Duration: 9 hours 14 minutes
This world history is not dominated by dates and facts but by the sweep of experience across the centuries. In forty concise chapters, Gombrich tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the atomic bomb. In between emerges a colorful picture of wars and conquests, grand works of art, and the spread and limitations of science.
