This work is the first part of a two-volume set which encompasses the full sweep of known history, balancing its coverage of both Eastern and Western regions. It traces events of worldwide impact whilst three important issues are examined in depth: the roots of European expansion, the Confucian, Moslem and non-Eurasian worlds on the eve of European expansion, and the stages of the expansion which followed. This volume deals with the period which covers prehistory to the year 1500. Features of these books include their global, interdisciplinary approach, which allows comprehensive examination of the issues surrounding major historical events and their emphasis upon Indian and Chinese civilizations in classic times as well as Graeco-Roman civilizations.
