Descripción Bodley Head. 1 Cloth(s), 2014. hard. Estado de conservación: New. How would one go about deciding which was the century of greatest change? Imagine pitting the Black Death against the suffrage vote, or the Industrial Revolution against the Internet. Best known as the author of The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England, historian Ian Mortimer takes us on a whirlwind tour of the past millennium in Western civilization. It is a story of godly scientists, shrewd farmers, cold-hearted entrepreneurs, and strong-minded women, of discovery, invention, revolution, and cataclysmic shifts in perspective—all of it bursting with ideas and underscored by a wry sense of humor in Mortimer's telling."I loved this book. It will enable you to understand your past, your place in it and that of your ancestors as never before. A modern classic."—Mail on Sunday (London) 403. Nº de ref. de la librería 64307

Descripción Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Centuries of Change bestselling historian Ian Mortimer takes you on a whirlwind tour of the last ten centuries of Western history. It is a journey into a past vividly brought to life and bursting with ideas, that pits one century against another in his quest to measure which century saw the greatest change. We journey from a time when there was a fair chance of your village being burnt to the ground by invaders, and dried human dung was a recommended cure for cancer, to a world in which explorers sailed into the unknown and civilisations came into conflict with each other on an epic scale. Here is a story of godly scientists, shrewd farmers, cold-hearted entrepreneurs and strong-minded women - a story of discovery, invention, revolution and cataclysmic shifts in perspective. Centuries of Change is a journey into the past like no other. Our understanding of change will never be the same again, and the lessons we learn along the way are profound ones for us all.
