Review:

Manages to tell its sprawling, turbulent, 4,000-year story in a single volume without either losing clarity or oversimplifying its subject...Rich and fascinating.--Arnold R. Isaacs "San Francisco Chronicle "

Will serve for decades to come as a standard reference and textbook.--Robert L. Worden "Washington Post Book World "
