- A SHORT HISTORY OF THE WORLD
Details"The story of our world is a story that is still very imperfectly known."From the very beginnings of life, spanning across the age of mammals evolving into monkeys, apes, and sub-men from the Neanderthaler to the early days of human adventure from the beginnings of cultivations to priests, sages, kings, and wars and from the conquests to material knowledge, revolutions, and reconstruction of the world . . . here is a story of how life began and evolved into us. A comprehensive and compelling account of the world history, H. G. Wells A Short History of the World is a thought-provoking masterpiece. Constructed on an evolutionary, anthropological, and sociological basis, it is an immensely popular period piece that remains one of the most readable of its kind." ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Herbert George Wells (21 September 1866 – 13 August 1946), usually referred to as H. G. Wells, was an English writer. He was prolific in many genres, writing dozens of novels, short stories, and works of social commentary, satire, biography, and autobiography, including even a book on war games. He is now best remembered for his science fiction novels and is often called a "father of science fiction", along with Jules Verne and Hugo Gernsback.During his own lifetime, however, he was most prominent as a forward-looking, even prophetic social critic who devoted his literary talents to the development of a progressive vision on a global scale. A futurist, he wrote a number of utopian works and foresaw the advent of airplanes, tanks, space travel, nuclear weapons, satellite television and something resembling the world wide web. His science fiction imagined time travel, alien invasion, invisibility, and biological engineering. Brian Aldiss referred to Wells as the "Shakespeare of science fiction”.
