A VERY SHORT HISTORY OF THE WORLD (pb)

 ABOUT THE TITLE
Following the success of his 'A Short History of the World', eminent historian Geoffrey Blainey has abridged his account of the grand adventure of human history to create an even more accessible version of his absorbing work.

'A Very Short History of the World' traces the story of the world's people during the last four million years, beginning before the human race moved out of Africa to explore and settle other continents. A consummate storyteller, Professor Blainey makes the past come alive as he touches on the trivial and the grand: everything from changes in diet to profound discoveries and mighty empires.

Author:
Geoffrey Blainey has written thirty books, taught at the University of Melbourne, and chaired the Australia Council from 1977-1981. He was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in 1998 and has served on many Commonwealth and Victorian government agencies, including the Australian War Memorial, the Literature Board and The Australian Heritage Commission. In early 2000 Professor Blainey received Australia's highest honour, Companion of the Order of Australia recognising his service to academia, research and scholarship, and his leadership of public debate on fundamental social and economic issues.
