Scholarly but accessible. Huge panoramic scope, from ancient Mesopotamia to the modern U.S., Mongols to the Vikings to the Mayans, E. & W. hemispheres.

Very interesting! If you aren't that interested in reading history, you should read the prologue at the end. Women, we have a long way to go to improve society before people ruin the earth and obliterate mankind. The only criticism is that the book is so heavy to hold that I could not hold it for reading for more than 20 minutes or so at a time.
