From the origins of mankind—literally—to the present, here are the twenty-five most intriguing mysteries of all time.
For each mystery, Aron re-creates the decisive events surrounding them and presents the latest discoveries and debates. Open Unsolved Mysteries of History and join the fray.From the Back Cover:
