Ideas That Changed the World

Author(s): Felipe Fernandez Armesto

Non Fiction

Felipe Fernandez Armesto's Ideas That Changed The World is a compelling and thought-provoking guide to the historical and philosophical notions that have shaped human civilization. From cannibalism to jihad, from the dawn of time to the present day, from Ancient Greece to North America, each idea is engagingly explained and powerfully illustrated over a double-page spread. Over 175 of the world's most pivotal ideas are liberated from their often obscure and academic contexts, expertly distilled by one of the world's greatest historians and thinkers, and given a new accessibility and ease of interpretation with Dorling Kindersley graphics and design. The book is at once an original and authoritative retelling of the story of civilization, a source book for all students of philosophy and history, and a highly browsable reference for the general reader.
