9780007506156: The Infographic History of the World

The History of the World, but not as you know it.

A new type of history is here – all 13.8 billion years of it, exploded into a visually jaw-dropping feast of facts, trends and timelines that tell you everything you’d ever want to know about the history of the world.

From the primordial soup to the technological revolution of the 21st century, interesting stuff has been going on; and ever since prehistoric man scratched the first tally markings into a damp cave wall, we’ve been counting and measuring it all.

Which historic warriors conquered the most territory, killed the most people, or had the largest empire?
When did everything evolve?
Which languages are related to which?
What’s been invented and when?
Where are we being born, and what are we dying of?
Which countries are eating all the food, causing all the pollution and taking all the drugs?

A story of civilisation and barbarism, of war and peace, this is history done in a new way – a beautifully designed collection of the most insightful and revealing trends that tell us what the human race has been up to, and where we’re heading.

Review:

‘The book is a delight’ The Economist

‘This new book, packed with beautifully and cleverly laid out infographics, provides a refreshing exploration of the history of the world.’ Creative Review

‘A new book that continues to push the field of infographics forward.’ Visually

‘Not only is this book a chock full of rich visuals, but the organization is an artform in itself. Small details […] make this a delightful read from cover to cover.’ Core 77

‘This book does nothing less than chronicle nearly 14 billion years of Earth’s history […] all rendered in clever, topic-specific graphics.’ Fast Company

Before joining the Guardian, he worked with Channel 4 Dispatches, Panorama and ITN with the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, and was a freelancer working for WikiLeaks during its publication of 250,000 US embassy cables.
