The structure of the work is innovative. Each chapter covers a period of historical time (e.g. a century). Sections within chapters describe what was going on in every geographical region of the world; each section provides a reference for that region in the subsequent chapter, i.e. in the next time period.
The reader can thus get a snapshot of the entire world at a point in time by reading one chapter, or can follow the history of a region through time by linking to sections in successive chapters.
This modular, linked structure is ideally suited to web-based online implementation, especially to the Connexions platform.
I am pleased to make this content available on Connexions for the enjoyment and enlightenment of everyone with an interest in the history of our world.
