A lively and engaging narrative history showing the common threads in the cultures that gave birth to our own.

This is the first volume in a bold new series that tells the stories of all peoples, connecting historical events from Europe to the Middle East to the far coast of China, while still giving weight to the characteristics of each country. Susan Wise Bauer provides both sweeping scope and vivid attention to the individual lives that give flesh to abstract assertions about human history.

Dozens of maps provide a clear geography of great events, while timelines give the reader an ongoing sense of the passage of years and cultural interconnection. This narrative history employs the methods of "history from beneath"-literature, epic traditions, private letters and accounts-to connect kings and leaders with the lives of those they ruled. The result is an engrossing tapestry of human behavior from which we may draw conclusions about the direction of world events and the causes behind them.

896 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.

The third volume in Susan Wise Bauer's lively and engaging narrative history series, this work follows The History of the Ancient World and The History of the Medieval World.

Continuing in the same tradition of following history from a linear, global, and interconnected perspective, The History of the Renaissance World brings readers from the rediscovery of Aristotle to the conquest of Constantinople- - - 1100 to 1453. Weaving together literature, letters, and various accounts of events, readers will discover both the grand, epic events of history (The Crusader Kingdoms, the End of the Papal Monarchy) as well as the changes that affected the daily lives of individuals living during these times (the Great Famine in Europe, dislocation in Africa).

Dozens of maps provide a clear geography of great events, while timelines give the reader an ongoing sense of the passage of years and cultural interconnection.

785 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.
