In his book, Professor Terje Tvedt asks the big question as to why the world has become what it is. He does so at a time when fundamental doubts are being raised all over the world about many of the explanations that have dominated in recent centuries. He shows how knowledge of world history is absolutely necessary to understand the present, and how stories about the past and present mirror each other.
With an infectious enthusiasm, Terje Tvedt shares his endeavour to understand some of the long lines of world history. He also makes clear how such insights affect how we understand our own time and whom we have become.
