Treasures of World History : The Story Of Civilization in 50 Documents, Hardback Book

Treasures of World History : The Story Of Civilization in 50 Documents Hardback



A spirited examination of world history, told through 50 key documents, by two celebrated historians and journalists.

With a wealth of experience between them on political, social, cultural and military history, and today's current affairs, Peter Snow and Ann MacMillan are the perfect guides to appreciating the significance of each document.

Chapters are devoted to each of the 50 documents across the political, military, artistic, and scientific spheres, and supported by additional contemporary images.

The documents themselves have been researched from the collections of national archives, museums, libraries, and private collections around the world.

The authors explain their criteria for selection and provide the pertinent details of each one, taking us on a journey from the scripts of the earliest civilizations through to momentous speeches and papers of today.
