What Happened When in the World by Rob Houston and Adam Benton
Published February 18, 2023
This is a useful little reference book, covering all of human history (the main areas, anyway, there’s only so much you can cover in an accessible book like this). It splits into various sections, early history, ancient lands, more recent revolutions, and right up to date with the space race and the internet taking over the globe. What I think this book does well is split up history like that, so that if you’re reading through, you can see which areas jump out at you that you might want to investigate further and read more about. It’s a great jumping off point to start learning more.
