Blackwell History of the World
Series Editor: R. I. Moore
The goal of this ambitious series is to provide an accessible source of knowledge about the entire human past. Some volumes in the series consider the world as a whole, while others provide synoptic views of the history of particular regions or civilizations.
The books give balanced attention to social and cultural history (in the broadest sense) as well as to political and institutional change. Each provides a systematic account of a very large subject, but they are also both imaginative and interpretive: authors are encouraged to present their own points of view.
