I realized history could be illustrated in a rather different way compared with what is taught in the textbooks. Even though parts of the Chinese version of this book are censored due to the ideological or political reasons, it does no harm to the greatness of this book.

Dec 22, Wei Luo rated it it was amazing. A global history from a global geographical perspective: everything is related to everything else, and that is how the human society evolves. May 23, Sida He rated it it was amazing. This book is extremely famous in China, and I bought an English version.
As the title indicates, this book not only narrates the historical events but also analyzes their repercussions in our contemporary life. This writing style has such significance, that even we cannot make a clear prediction about the future, we still know that the result must be led by a cause, and will not be overwhelmed by the rapidly changing world.
Jul 21, Wei Zhang rated it it was amazing. Read the Chinese version. The book is very easy and fun to read. I especially like the the way author attaches a chapter after each main era of the global history about today's society. Insightful and belanced perspectives, help see big pictures. Mar 01, Yaqiao Li rated it it was amazing. I would very much like to see a Chinese author write a global history combined more thoroughly with Chinese history.
As the second volume of this book focused mostly on European centralized view no problem with that. To inspect China from a global point of view seems to be a difficult task, hope some good work can come out.
May 07, Michaelchan rated it it was amazing. I haven't finished reading this book but I am already giving it 5 star status. It provides a very complete view of world history and the interactions among countries at various stages, rolling out much like actors on a theatre play. Feb 23, Libowen7 marked it as to-read.

A Global History : From Prehistory to the 21st Century
This exploration of world history takes an interdisciplinary, global rather than a regional or national approach - tracing those major forces, movements, and events that had a world-wide impact. Surveying a full sweep of world history, the sixth edition provides a balanced coverage of both Eastern and Western regions, from earliest man to the present day. It combines all the information contained in "The World to " and "The World Since ", but includes new material on the following: the earliest humans, Africa, European expansion in the age of discovery plus comparative data on Russian expansion, information on plant and animal diffusion in the modern world, and new information on the Portuguese slave trade. In particular this new edition connects the past, present and future and the combination of resulting patterns, drawing implications for the future should those patterns emerge once again.
