9780141030425: The New Penguin History of the World

One of the most extraordinary history bestsellers on the Penguin list, John Roberts's book has now been updated by Odd Arne Westad to make sure it keeps its amazing appeal to a new generation of readers.

'A stupendous achievement ... the unrivalled World History for our day. It extends over all ages and all continents. It covers the forgotten experiences of ordinary people as well as chronicling the acts of those in power. It is unbelievably accurate in its facts and almost incontestable in its judgements' A. J. P. Taylor, Observer
