Even though this was written in the 60s, it is still well worth reading today. This is an easy read and good for people just dipping their toes in the history of civilizations. I have a history degree and have studied extensively, yet I also came away with fresh insights.
This book deals in broad brush strokes, rather than intricate details. You’ll come away with a greater understanding of the patterns surrounding the rise and fall of some of the great civilizations.
