Read by the author.
Forty thousand years ago, humans existed as small, autonomous bands, each in contact with neighbors but unaware of others spread across the planet. Today, no life can unfold in isolation from human activity. In this book, Tamim Ansary's presents a sweeping global history that describes the separate beginnings of the world's major cultural movements: Confuscianism, Islam, Judeo-Christianity, and Nomadism.
