Figuring Out the Past: The 1,073 Vital Statistics That Explain World History

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

Drawing on cutting-edge scholarship of world history and economics, Turchin and Hoyer reveal the progress of civilization by numbers.

Building on the Pocket World in Figures series' trademark charts and tables, Figuring Out the Past uses charts, maps, and other graphics to literally show the rise and fall of trade networks, countries, and empires, as well as just how far we have come in the past few centuries.

For instance, did you know that the Mongol conquests resulted in a perceptible drop in carbon emissions? That malaria has been the most common cause of death? That the United Kingdom was the most indebted it has ever been at the end of the Napoleonic wars?



Figuring Out the Past promises to change how we think about history and the economy.
