by J. M. Roberts

La magna Historia del mundo de J.M. Roberts es un ejercicio extraordinario de comprensión y síntesis, en el que el prestigioso historiador británico recorre la historia universal en una exhaustiva crónica de la humanidad desde sus orígenes en la sabana africana al mundo surgido de las cenizas de las torres gemelas.Un iluminador relato tejido con maestría y rigor que persigue los principales procesos históricos sin dejar a un lado el arte, las religiones, la economía o los avances científicos para ponerlos en relación y así desvelar el legado que ha sedimentado en la configuración del mundo que vivimos. Con su maestría para la narración histórica, nos cuenta el origen de las civilizaciones en Mesopotamia, el Antiguo Egipto, India, China, África y América del Sur; nos explica el Imperio romano, la explosiva llegada del islam, el auge y caída del dominio samurái en Japón, los reinos medievales del África subsahariana, las conquistas mongolas, la independencia de EEUU, la Revolución francesa, los imperios coloniales, las guerras mundiales o la caída de la URSS. Escrito con vivacidad y firmeza, esta Historia del mundo ofrece la mejor y más legible historia universal, por primera vez en un solo volumen.
