Product description

From the Back Cover

You've all seen the poster of the milky way galaxy with an arrow to a point about halfway out from the center and the caption, 'You are here.' This book is like that only more so. It locates the human experience in the entirety of space-time.--Alfred Crosby, author of Ecological Imperialism: The Biological Expansion of Europe, 900-1900 --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

"No work in this genre [macro-history] is better than David Christian's Maps of Time: An Introduction to Big History.... [I]t is a brilliantly executed act of provocation." - The Times "Forges bold and ingenious connections between the physical and social sciences." - The Age "A good read, a fascinating prospectus for a new kind of history." - American Scientist" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
