"...vividly re-creates the development of the earliest cities. Wood rises to this daunting challenge, probing the origins of modern civilization while engaging readers with a writing style that is as accessible as it is spellbinding. The search takes him first to the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, revealing the remnants of Mesopotamian culture. Throughout his travels--from Iraq onward to India, China, Egypt, and Central America--the fascinating historical detail presented is supported by maps, old and new photographs, artwork, and images of antiquities. All serve to illustrate a grand journey, as Wood penetrates modern-day societies and their customs, encountering crumbling ruins and visualizing settlements that once existed, albeit thousands of years past."
