Written by a team of nearly 100 experts from around the world, the third volume in this series deals with historical events between 700BC and 700AD. The volume also studies the trends and developments that characterize that period, in particular the impact of new technologies and religions on the peoples around the world.

From Library Journal:

This third volume in a series of seven produced by UNESCO on the history of the human race divides the world by large geographical areas, then presents information on every aspect of the peoples there, including technology, art, literature, agriculture, and politics. The dozens of scholars from around the world who contribute to this work are all specialists, as are the editorial staff. The text itself, while it features many technical terms, is never pedantic, making the book suitable for general history readers as well as students. The illustrations, which include maps, support the text well. In its depths of scholarship and clarity, History of Humanity compares favorably with such works as Chronicle of the World (DK, 1995), The New Encyclopedia of World History (Oxford Univ., 1993), and The Timetables of History (S.L.S., 1987). It contains more information on, for example, Japan than the comparable entry in The New Encyclopedia Britannica. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.?Norman Malwitz, Queensborough P.L., Queens,, N.Y.

Review:

"Providing a welcome third volume to their multicultural history, UNESCO and Routledge have published a fine reference work to be included with the first two volumes of the series. This international history breaks with the traditions of the western world and its implied ethnocentrism..... "History of Humanity is a reference work of value to the collections of college, university or public libraries. The set could be useful in answering general reference questions or as a guide to the beginning researcher looking for information and details."
-"American Reference Books Annual, Volume 29, 1998
"The text itself, while it features many technical terms, is never pedantic, making the book suitable for general history readers as well as students. The illustrations, which include maps, support the text well."
-"Library Journal, June 15, 1996
