Description - The Story of the World in 100 Moments: Discover the stories that defined humanity and shaped our world by Neil Oliver

The author of the major bestseller, The Story of the British Isles in 100 Places, presents a journey through time, curating one hundred moments that shaped our world, from 5000 BC to the present.

From the bestselling author of The Story of the British Isles in 100 Places comes an outstanding new history of how our world was made.

'Oliver is an evocative storyteller, vividly bringing his tales to life' BBC History

Neil Oliver takes us on a whistle-stop tour around the world and through a million years to give us this unique and invaluable grasp of how human history pieces together.

From the east to the west, north to south, these 100 moments act like stepping stones allowing us to make sense of how these pivotal events have shaped the world we know today.

Including many moments readers will expect - from Genghis Khan's domination on earth to Armstrong's first steps on the moon, and from the advent of the printing press to the birth of the internet - there are also surprises, and with them, some remarkable, unforgettable stories that give a whole new insight on our past.
