Who was the first black queen? How much do you know about China’s history? Most people’s knowledge of world history is hazy and incomplete at best. This No-Nonsense Guide to World History gives a full picture, revealing the hidden histories and communities left out of conventional textbooks—from the civilizations of Africa, Asia, and Latin America to the history of women.
It includes a final chapter on how climate change, 9/11, the Iraq war, corporate power, and China’s headlong growth fit into the broader patterns of world history.
