A Little History of the World - E. H. Gombrich

This gorgeous book will draw you into its pages and hold you there. Written in German in the 1930s and beloved the world over, it was finally translated into English in 2000. Gombrich spryly traces humanity from its humble origins to its grandiose inventions and back again. The illustrated edition adds faces, maps, and designs to the events and mysteries. You will find yourself wishing that Gombrich was still around to finish writing the 20th century and to help us understand why though “there are no easy remedies... we still have the right to go on hoping.”
