812 thought on “A History of the World in 100 Objects

  1. This is an excellent read As usual, BBC does not disappoint The book is compiled from transcripts of a 100 episode series on BBC Radio One hundred objects are thoughtfully picked from exhibits at the British Museum to chronicle the history of mankind, from its earliest beginnings up to the 21st century The 100 chapters are short, but solid, each corresponding to an episode on radio The book is great for leisurely, but very informative reading A definite advantage that the book has over the radio [...]


  2. I believe I learned per page reading this book than any I ve ever read A tour through all of history using objects collected stolen by the British Museum, this book is a bravura execution of material culture and archaeological studies In fact, I used several entries with my Advanced Placement Literature class in order to expose them to effective and interesting close reading MacGregor does with objects what literary critics do with a passage of poetry he describes the object lovely pictures ARE [...]


  3. I m afraid I must respectfully disagree with other customers in the review section For the price, this is a FIVE STAR book It is illustrated beautifully with full color photographs I have the hard copy and not the Kindle version though I do own a Kindle My guess is that the pages would present stunningly on the Kindle for iPad or Kindle for Mac I also have a Kindle E ink reader I doubt it would show well on that last device I noticed one of the reviewers criticized the photo quality I must disag [...]


  4. Learned a number of things both about past civilizations and the ignorance of both myself and western education about past civilizations Found the war throne very moving It is disconcerting a bit to realize that the British museum has L taken many important relics from all over the world.


  5. Extraordinary Everything the format, the language, above all the content matter spanning all cultures, never boring, ever illuminating the immense shadows of ignorance around those glimpses of our own story that school managed to slip through, but never really taught I know the author could not possibly fit in the whole British museum, but I miss one single item I try and never fail to go and see again every time in London the Karissima Lepidina message on wood tablet that from the marginal outp [...]


  6. The author did a stellar job with this assemblage of objects from throughout history and the descriptions are very well presented Good representation of the history of our civilization without political or religious bias.


  7. I was just a bit reticent about downloading this book I was not familiar with the radio series and my preference has always been for narrative chronological history an unfolding story So I was slightly put off by the idea of a collection of essays surrounding various objects Again, some reviews seemed to speak of the poor quality of the illustrations in the printed version No worries Each essay, though centered on the particular object, broadens out and often its scope covers all history, making [...]


  8. Originally this book started out as a project for BBC Radio 4 with four years in the planning, and a host of experts to help him, Neil MacGregor has created a really special collection of top artefacts, all of which can be found at the British Museum The series has been described as a project charting the history of humanity, and after having read the book it comes as no surprise that it has won awards and bursaries for the museum, at which MacGregor was the Director for 13 years.Each object get [...]
