Four essential elements of the topic are investigated in turn - the evolution of tribes and civilizations throughout the world, leadership and government as society became more complicated, travel and warfare, science and technology. This book enables you to contrast the strengths and weaknesses of different peoples, how some grew into great civilizations, and others did not - and to discover why. Material is drawn from each of the world's major early civilisations and cultures is investigated in turn, from the dramatic changes during Stone Age and the ancient river valley civilizations of Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley and the Nile, to the continuing cultures of the Arctic and Native American Indians.
