It examines the development of civilizations in the Near East - Babylonian, Assyrian, Persian - as well as those in Europe - the Minoans, Etruscans and Celts. Across the continents of Africa, Asia and America it covers subjects including Egypt from its pre-dynastic roots to the age of the Pharaohs, China during the Shang and Zhou dynasties, and the great cities of the Incas and Aztecs. Vivid descriptions of individual civilizations are complimented by discussion of such key topics as colonization, agriculture and technology, and the rise of empires. Richly illustrated with photographs, artwork re-creations and full-colour maps, this is an illuminating and mulit-faceted one-volume introduction to early peoples and the worlds they created.
