  • World Historyby Clive Ponting

    Random House 2008; US$ 27.21

    Conventional accounts of world history tend to focus on the rise of Western civilisation and concentrate on the story of ancient Greece, the Roman empire and the expansion of Europe. The histories of the great civilisations of China, India and Japan, and therefore the experience of the majority of the world's people, have been relegated to a minor... more...

  • The Crimean Warby Clive Ponting

    Random House 2011; US$ 20.40

    The Crimean War is full of resonance - not least, the Charge of the Light Brigade, the Siege of Sevastopol and Florence Nightingale at Scutari with her lamp. In this fascinating book, Clive Ponting separates the myths from the reality, and tells the true story of the heroism of the ordinary soldiers, often through eye-witness accounts of the men... more...

  • Thirteen Daysby Clive Ponting

    Random House 2011; US$ 23.10

    At the end of WWI, Germany was demonised. The Treaty of Versailles contained a 'war guilt' clause pinning the blame on the aggression of Germany and accusing her of 'supreme offence against international morality'. Thirteen Days rejects this verdict. Clive Ponting has made a thorough study of the incredibly complex diplomatic documents. His interpretation... more...

  • A New Green History Of The Worldby Clive Ponting

    Random House 2011; US$ 16.32

    Like Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs and Steel , Clive Ponting's book studies the relationship between the environment and human history. It examines world civilisations from Sumeria to ancient Egypt, from Easter Island to the Roman Empire and it argues that human beings have repeatedly built societies that have grown and prospered by exploiting the... more...

  • Armageddonby Clive Ponting

    Random House 2012; US$ 27.21

    Fifty years after the end of World War II Clive Ponting provides a major reassessment of the most destructive conflict in human history - one in which 85 million people died.

  • Gunpowderby Clive Ponting

    Random House 2011; US$ 14.95

    For many, gunpowder is associated with Guy Fawkes and the attempt to blow up parliament on 5 November 1605. Fewer people know that the formula for gunpowder was in fact discovered more than 1,000 years ago - in China - and by accident - and was initially a medicine. This fascinating book tells the story of the huge impact of gunpowder... more...

  • The Twentieth Centuryby Clive Ponting

    Henry Holt and Co. 2014; US$ 8.99

    For much of the world, the twentieth century can be seen as a big-budget disaster film--the stifling darkness of oppression, the green of the ruling classes. For the world's elite, the near-universal adoption of capitalism today reveals modern history as a narrative of unbroken progress.   Eschewing conventional chronological accounts, The Twentieth... more...
