looking for a book

Hello everyone!

I am searching for advice on a history book. Im looking for a wide sweeping history book that doesnt have eurocentric / christian values. Something along the lines of Howard Zinn’s ‘Peoples History..’ but more focuses on the whole world. I realize Howard isnt completely objective, but objectivism is what I want from my world history book.

I bought one the other day, and then I read reviews on it afterwards. I wouldnt be able to read it I think without grimacing numerous of times.

Any help?


  • hey jkd have you read the book called" guns, germs and steel" the fates of human societies? great book jam packed with information. the author- jared diamond, keeps the reader constantly engaged buy asking question through out the book to try to reach an understanding of how we developed till this point. this book is a great review of human history. it is lengthy in the sense that you must digest a lot of information from every page. i think i will have to read it twice as a matter of fact. you must keep your focus on what he is written, as the mind can easily wander. good luck with finding your hx book charm.

    The Pulitzer Prizes honor a book of history and a biography every year. They also release the names of two other finalists in each category. (Note: Academic historians tend to make a firm distinction between history and biography, even though they overlap a great deal in subject matter. For the purposes of this post, I am minimizing the distinction.)
