Publisher's Summary

GESCHICHTE als ein großes Kaleidoskop - kreisend, vielfältig verbunden, unentwegt VOLLER ÜBERRASCHUNGEN.

Neil MacGregor, Direktor des British Museum, beschreibt nicht nur 100 Objekte, sondern erschließt uns durch ihre Betrachtung immer auch ein Stück Weltgeschichte. Wer den hier versammelten Dingen - vom afrikanischen Faustkeil bis zur Solarlampe made in China - auf diese Weise begegnet, erlebt von der ersten bis zur letzten Minute ein intellektuelles und ästhetisches Vergnügen und eines der außergewöhnlichsten Radio-Projekte der letzten Jahre. Stoff genug für 22 Stunden spannender Unterhaltung, die von Hanns Zischler farbig und lebendig präsentiert werden.

Zu diesem Titel erhalten Sie eine PDF-Datei, die nach dem Kauf automatisch Ihrer Bibliothek hinzugefügt wird.

What the Critics Say

Dieses Buch ist so schön, so klug und so richtungweisend, dass es eigentlich in jede Bibliothek gehört.
-- Tim Sommer, art - Das Kunstmagazin, Dezember 2011

MacGregors 'Geschichte der Welt in 100 Objekten' ist eines der wundervollsten Sachbücher der letzten Jahrzehnte. Lehrreich und unterhaltsam zugleich, verbindet es Intelligenz und Witz mit einer populären, edel bebilderten Darstellung, die es zu einem typischen Lieblingsbuch für wissbegierige Jugendliche und neugierige Erwachsene macht.
-- Alexander Cammann, Literaturen, Dezember 2011/Januar 2012

Ein kulturwissenschaftliches Meisterstück aus England. Grandios.
-- Kirsten Voigt, NZZ am Sonntag, 30. Oktober 2011

    "Excellent book - awful audio version"
    What would have made Eine Geschichte der Welt in 100 Objekten better?

    The subject of the book is great and very interesting. The reading is excellent, but for some reason someone decided to add music inbetween chaptters. Or ... not really music; more like sounds. Or noise. Actually, sometimes it sounded like someone trying to smash a piano with a banjo while playing the shower scene music from 'Psycho'. Only worse. I had to stop listening to this book after a couple of hours because the music was so incredibly annoying.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eine Geschichte der Welt in 100 Objekten?

    Well, the reading was great, and parts of the book stod out as very interesting, but the most memorable moment was probably when I decided to stop listening to it


    Have you listened to any of Hanns Zischler and Nico Holonics ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but their performance here is excellent.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Eine Geschichte der Welt in 100 Objekten?

    Every single scene involving music.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book and a terrible book. The stories are great, well writtten, interesting, and well read. But I simply can't imagine what drove the editors to decide that music needed to be added in order to enhance the listening experience, because it doesn't. Here's one credit wasted on a book which I'll never finish.
