Written by Chris Brazier.
Published in Canada in association with New Internationalist Publications™ Ltd. by Between the Lines, 2006.


Most people know bits and pieces of history without ever knowing how they fit together. The No-Nonsense Guide to World History focuses on the continents and communities left out of conventional textbooks, integrating their history with the more familiar narrative of imperial dynasties and superpower battles. In one slim volume, Chris Brazier tells the whole story, teasing out the lessons that humanity needs to take forward into the future.

This new, revised edition includes a section on how the key issues of the twenty-first century--climate change, 9/11, the war in Iraq, corporate power, China’s rapid growth--fit into the broader patterns of world history.
“Chris Brazier’s No-Nonsense Guide to World History is vivid, informal and informative ... ” – Professor William Bienart, St. Antony's College, University of Oxford
