This fleeting world: a short history of humanity

Research output: Book/ReportBook


A great historian can make clear the connections between the first Homo sapiens and today’s version of the species, and a great storyteller can make those connections come alive. David Christian is both, and This Fleeting World: A Short History of Humanity, makes the journey — from the earliest foraging era to the agrarian era to our own modern era — a fascinating one. Ready to help your students give up their preconceptions that anything old is probably boring? Enter This Fleeting World.
