We are more resilient during challenging times if we keep learning and expanding our minds; not just through childhood, but in all stages of life. Following in the footsteps of E. H. Gombrich's worldwide bestseller A Little History of the World, the books in our Little Histories series explore the history of the world's most remarkable people, events and ideas. With engaging personal insights, our authors will take you on a whistle-stop journey from ancient times to the present exploring all of life's big subjects from archaeology to science.

Gombrich, A Little History of the World
