    From the schism between Rome and Constantinople to the rise of the T'ang Dynasty, from the birth of Muhammad to the crowning of Charlemagne, this erudite book tells the fascinating, often violent story of kings, generals, and the peoples they ruled.

    Story

    This is an academic treatise written with a great deal of human detail. The world is described at the same time in segments, so you undertand that Constantinople fell the 3rd time when gunpowder was devised in china and civilizations evaporated in meso america. I wanted a big map to go with this epic. so I could follow the where with the what. I'm sure the book has maps and diagrams which would have made this easier to remember. I have to confess that I do not know if Antioch the ancient city is anywhere near Nicea. I did relate to places like Kandahar. The map part was my only negative remark..
