A brief history of the world, as viewed through the one information container that has become a universal yardstick for measuring progress, is presented by David Ewing Duncan, who takes the reader from the first recorded date to the present.  Duncan, with the powerful drama of cultures from Vedic India and Cleopatra’s Egypt to a cast of characters which
includes Julius Caesar and Omar Khayyam , demonstrates how, as the various peoples of the world have struggled to record time, they have by and large gotten it wrong, at the same time causing both war and strategic alliances throughout the world.
