An Illustrated History of the World Gebundenes Buch A perfect introduction to history for young and old, this illustrated journey through our world´s culture and events travels from the Big Bang to the iPod and into the future. This is a trip through time, past dinosaurs, Vikings, Aztecs and spaceships. It looks at wars and disasters; introduces artists, explorers and leaders; shows us living in castles, yurts and skyscrapers. And it does not neglect the imagination-here too are dragons, mythical figures and TV characters, alongside world-changing inventions borne from the imaginations of scientists and explorers. Each scene puts global events in perspective, in space and time. For adults and older children, these detailed images reward a close study to test your own knowledge of political, cultural and historical events. For young children, each spread provides a slew of talking points, with the world´s stories concisely represented.
