Product description


'If you want to get a sense of what it means to be Greek, French, German, Egyptian or Ghanaian, then make the excellent Histories of Nations your first port of call' - Geographical Magazine 'Immaculately edited and superbly illustrated ... rich and multi-layered' - History Today 'Bold and intriguing ... deft and revelatory' - BBC History Magazine

Product Description

To understand the cultural and political differences that endanger our world, we need to appreciate fundamental national stories. In this unique book, leading writers and scholars from twenty-eight countries give thoughtful, engaging accounts of their own nations history.
The countries have been selected to represent every continent and every type of state: large and small; mature democracies and religious autocracies; states that have existed for centuries and those born recently, making up two-thirds of the worlds population.
Peter Furtado is the former editor of the internationally renowned magazine 'History Today'. Note: The ebook edition includes the complete text of the printed book with a reduced number of illustrations.
