Opis produktu

In 1935 with a doctorate in art history and no prospect of a job the 26yearold Ernst Gombrich was invited to attempt a history of the world for younger readers. Amazingly he completed the task in an intense six weeks and Eine kurze Weltgeschichte fur junge Leser was published in Vienna to immediate success and is now available in twentyfive languages across the world. In forty concise chapters Gombrich tells the story of man from the stone age to the atomic bomb. In between emerges a colourful picture of wars and conquests grand works of art and the spread and limitations of science. This is a text dominated not by dates and facts but by the sweep of mankinds experience across the centuries a guide to humanitys achievements and an acute witness to its frailties. The product of a generous and humane sensibility this timeless account makes intelligible the full span of human history.His enthusiasm for his subject is irresistible... With Gombrichs Little History at last available in English there will be many generations of future historians who will attribute to it their lifelong passion for historyand for truth Lisa Jardine The Times... the book charms amuses and informs superbly... In A Little History Gombrich triumphantly proves he is as much a story teller as a professor Andrew Roberts Daily ExpressThe publishers tell us that Philip Pullman calls it irresistible. So it is... as an outline of how we have come to be where we are I doubt it could be bettered... a perfect birthday present for a child with an enquiring mind. I wish it had been available when I was young Allan Massie Literary Review... another charming work of history for children which is shortly to be published by Yale and first appeared in 1935... Its as fresh now as it was then. If I were Ruth Kelly the Education Secretary Id order a copy for myself. Then Id make it prescribed reading for every primary school in the country Melanie McDonagh The Evening Standard
