世界小史 | A Little History of the World by E.H. Gombrich

本书由著名艺术史家贡布里希撰写,一经出版便受到热烈欢迎。作者用成熟睿智的文笔,将人类自古至今几千年的历程浓缩在这本小书里,为读者描绘了一幅幅神态鲜明、脉络清晰的景象: 猛犸象猎人栖身的简陋山洞,在广阔水域上闪闪发光的雅典卫城,黑烟滚滚的迦太基城废墟,充满雄性荷尔蒙和血泪的罗马斗兽场,折戟沉沙的无敌舰队,只剩断壁残垣的圆明园,还有硝烟弥漫的二战战场。

随着贡布里希的讲述慢慢推进,当我们意识到历史的存在的时候,它已经近在我们眼前了。

In 1935, with a doctorate in art history and no prospect of a job, the 26-year-old Ernst Gombrich was invited by a publishing acquaintance to attempt a history of the world for younger readers. Amazingly, he completed the task in an intense six weeks, and Eine kurze Weltgeschichte für junge Leser was published in Vienna to immediate success, and is now available in seventeen languages across the world. 

Toward the end of his long life, Gombrich embarked upon a revision and, at last, an English translation. A Little History of the World presents his lively and involving history to English-language readers for the first time. Superbly designed and freshly illustrated, this is a book to be savored and collected. In forty concise chapters, Gombrich tells the story of man from the stone age to the atomic bomb. 

In between emerges a colorful picture of wars and conquests, grand works of art, and the spread and limitations of science. This is a text dominated not by dates and facts, but by the sweep of mankind's experience across the centuries, a guide to humanity's achievements and an acute witness to its frailties. The product of a generous and humane sensibility, this timeless account makes intelligible the full span of human history.
