(Jacob Rumans) #1

‘A sweeping synopsis for the history buff.’ Philadelphia Inquirer

‘Students of history are fortunate to have Grenville’s monumental history available.’ Ronald H. Fritze,
American Reference Books Annual

‘Follows a relatively new trend among historians to abandon their sometimes narrow parochialism in
favour of “world history”... This volume deals with more thematic issues like industrialization, the
empowerment of women, the rise of environmental concerns and multinational corporations.’ Foreign

‘Magnificently detailed, brilliantly written... An extraordinarily readable global history.’ Parade

‘This book by the masterful international relations historian, Grenville, already finds primacy of place
in the reading lists of most university courses as the single definitive history of this century.’ The Journal
of the United Service Institution of India
