Summary
This book takes us on a journey to ancient times, telling how peoples of the world settled down and founded cities, conquered neighbors, and established religions, and continues over the course of history, when they fought two nearly global wars and journeyed into space. Davis's account is lightened with anecdotes and quotes. Though we live in an age of many doubts, Davis thinks we humans are advancing.--From publisher description
