I'm going to be meeting Geoffrey Blainey in a few weeks, supposedly to discuss this book. But I already have questions. 1. Why the title? This isn't a history of the world, this is clearly a history of the human race. I don't know how well known he is outside Australia (if at all), but for better or for worse, he's pretty much the foremost historian in this country. To the general public, he's mainly well known for writing A Short History of the World (of which this is, I think, an abridged version) and A Short History of the Twenty-First Century, both of which I have read and enjoyed. Arrogance? If so, whose? 2. He begins with hominids in Africa. Why start here? Is this history, or prehistory?

He did for the English narrative what Shakespeare later did for drama. He was the first writer to use lines of poetry that had an appeal to those interested in nature and books. His writing was very modern for his time, even more modern than the writings of others after he died, but he stayed within the traditions of medieval poetry. Chaucer was born in London, no one knows exactly what date but sometime between 1340 and 1344.

This book shaped my understanding of human geography. It reminds readers that America was settled by several different cultures and countries. It’s a triumph of storytelling about the different frontiers of America. We were often taught American history as going from East to West and the British settlement as being the preeminent story. Ted Morgan’s book emphasises the fact there were multiple settlements and multiple beginnings of American history. He spends the early chapters talking about American Indians and their presence on the landscape before European settlement
