In their concise overview of global history, the McNeills explore the webs that have drawn humans together in patterns of interaction and exchange, cooperation and competition since earliest times. From the thin, localized webs of early agricultural communities to the dense, electrified global web of today, human history unfolds in a clear, understandable way in this original view.
