From the earliest civilizations to the st century a global journey through human history tieing in with a major BBC television series br br Andrew Marr author of two bestselling histories of Great Britain now turns his attention to the world as a whole i A Short History of the World i takes readers from the Mayans to Mongolia from the kingdom of Benin to the court of the Jagiellonian kings of Poland Traditional histories of this kind have tended to be Eurocentric telling mankind s story through tales of Greece and Rome and the crowned heads of Europe s oldest monarchies Here Marr widens the lens concentrating as much if not more on the Americas Africa and Asia Instead of focusing on one episode of history taking place in one place he draws surprising parallels and makes fascinating connections focusing on a key incident or episode to tell a larger story for instance the liberation of the serfs in Russia which took place at the same time as the American Civil War which resulted in the abolition of slavery in the U S But he begins the account with an episode in the life of Tolstoy who racked up huge gambling debts and had to sell land and slaves as a result Fresh and exciting this is popular history at its very best, No description available, b The debut novel by Britain s most celebrated pundit a gleefully twisted take on Downing Street b br br It s September and the United Kingdom is on the verge of a crucial referendum that will determine once and for all if the country remains a member of the European Union or goes its own way But unsuspected by the electorate and unknown to all but a handful of members of the Prime Minister s innermost circle there is a shocking secret at the very heart of government that could change everything in an instant A group of ruthlessly determined individuals will stop at nothing including murder to prevent that from happening br Andrew Marr s first novel is a darkly comic tale of deception and skullduggery at Downing Street and Whitehall Making full use of his unrivalled inside knowledge of the British political scene Marr has created a sparkling entertainment a wholly original depiction of Westminster and its denizens and a fascinating irreverent glimpse behind the parliamentary curtain, We may be about to see a new country indeed two new countries emerging on these islands Half a lifetime ago I sat down to write this book as a work of history As it s aged it s become current affairs br br Just twenty years ago it seemed impossible that Scotland would ever get home rule let alone full independence Yet very soon there will be a Scottish referendum which will not only decide on this matter but which will have profound consequences for the future of all people on these islands br br In i The Battle for Scotland i first published in Andrew Marr provides the historical backdrop to these extraordinary events He attempts to explain the deep sources of Scottish national feeling and the political will which has brought us to this deeply uncertain time br br And in a substantial new introduction Marr considers how we got here so suddenly what the stakes really are and what the questions every voting Scot and every non voting UK citizen will be asking themselves br br Andrew Marr was born in Glasgow He graduated from Cambridge University and has enjoyed a long career in political journalism working for the i Scotsman i the i Independent i the i Economist i the i Express i and the i Observer i From to he was the BBC s Political Editor Andrew s broadcasting includes series on contemporary thinkers for BBC and Radio political documentaries for Channel and BBC Panorama and Radio s i Start The Week i
