A little history of the world originally in german eine kurze weltgeschichte fur junge leser is a history book by ernst gombrichit was written in 1935 in vienna austria when gombrich was 26 years oldhe was rewriting it for english readers when he died in 2001 at 92 in london gombrich insisted that only he translate the book into english. So begins a little history of the world an engaging and lively book written for readers both young and old rather than focusing on dry facts and dates e h gombrich vividly brings the full span of human experience on earth to life from the stone age to the atomic age. A little history of the world is also fairly european centric this isnt a huge failing but it would have been nice for there to be more asian and african history as well this is a failing of many more modern books as well all in all this is a really great introduction to world history for children. A fantastic tour de force of the history of the world in less than 300 pages the book is intended for young readers between 12 and 16 i would mean but is also enjoyable for the older reader like myself as a brief overview of what has happened on our planet from prehistoric times until the fall of the berlin wall
