Description for A Little History of The World (Little Histories)

Review

"'I wish it had been available when I was young.' Allan Massie, Literary Review 'There is not one of the 39 short chapters that is not enlivened by a sharp insight or arresting image.' Tim Blanning, The Sunday Telegraph 'With Gombrich's Little History, at last available in English there will be many generations of future historians who will attribute to it their lifelong passion for history - and for truth.' Lisa Jardine, The Times 'Do not, from its title, underestimate this book.' Brian Sewell, Evening Standard 'Gombrich opens with the most magical definition of history I have ever read.' Amanda Vickery, Guardian Review 'Brilliant, irresistible: a wonderful surprise.' Philip Pullman 'the whole experience of human history, from prehistory to the Second World War, compressed into a flowing narrative... A delight.' The Daily Telegraph"

About the Author

Among E. H. GOMBRICH's many writings are the international bestsellers The Story of Art and Art and Illusion. He was director of the Warburg Institute of the University of London from 1959 to 1976.
