about this book

History comes alive in this engaging and lavishly illustrated chronicle, which spans world events and people from ancient times to the 21st century. The voices of the great and humble speak to us through songs, documents, edicts, poetry, letters, menus, and even graffiti, revealing each era’s conflicts, daily life, arts, science, religion, and enduring influence. Interactive design focuses on the tangible artifacts of history, and magnificent illustrations–including period art, archival photographs, and expertly rendered scenes of long-ago events–bring vivid immediacy and eye appeal to every colorful spread. With its unique emphasis on voices from the past, and its inviting, innovative design, Eyewitness to History is a unique and absorbing take on world history.
