Desmond Olivier Dingle gives us the benefit of his huge and devastating knowledge by charting the history of the world in 58 chapters and three prefaces. Each chapter is replete with erudition: "The Chinese Empire is one of the oldest Empires in the world and existed until recently without anyone knowing about it. Apart from the Chinese, obviously." The man behind Dingle, Patrick Barlow, also penned the National Theatre of Brent’s Love Upon the Throne and The Messiah.

About the Author:

Desmond Dingle needs no introduction. Patrick Barlow's plays for the National Theatre of Brent include Love Upon the Throne and The Messiah. His six-part series for Channel 4, Massive Landmarks of the Twentieth Century, was screened last year. On stage, Barlow was Toad at the (real) National Theatre; on television he was in The Thin Blue Line; and on film he was Bridget Jones's mother's lover.

Review:

'This book bears comparison with 1066 And All That. Obviously' Nick Hern
