Product description


Spier takes us one important step forward in making big history accessible to all.  I look forward to the next, more fully illustrated and documented, step in this process.   ( Journal of World History, 1 August 2012

"This is a deep and important book that promises to send scholars in many different fields off on new paths in search of a grand unified theory of history." (Journal of Global History, 2011)

"Personally, I think everyone should have access to this story, and I would put it at the heart of the national curriculum as well." (The Times Higher Education, September 2010) 


"Brilliant.  It pushes the project of theorizing big history a lot further, in exactly the right way, alert to the dangers of over–theorizing or theorizing on too limited information. It will be a major contribution to the discipline.
David Christian, Macquarie University, author of Maps of Time: An Introduction to Big History

  This book has convinced me not only that Big History is interesting and exciting, but has established a genuine intellectual basis for integrating historical knowledge, and historical method, with those of the natural world. This is a framework in which, ideally, all history should be investigated, taught and discussed.
R.I. Moore, Emeritus Professor, Newcastle University

"The most exciting book that I′ve read in 30 years. A masterpiece!"
Barry Rodrigue, University of Southern Maine

Narratives don t come much grander than the current scientific view of the history of the Universe   Spier is one of a small band of exponents of big history, the effort to put the whole story together in an academically rigorous way   Everyone should have access to this.  
Times Higher Education Supplement
