From the earliest civilizations to the 21st century: a global journey through human history, published alongside a landmark BBC One television series. Andrew Marr revisits some of the traditional epic stories, from classical Greece and Rome to the rise of Napoleon, but surrounds them with less familiar material, from Peru to the Ukraine, China to the Caribbean.
