Praise

Praise for Simon Sebag Montefiore’s The World

“A staggering achievement. Simon Sebag Montefiore has given us a tremendous gift: a pulsingly readable world history through the millennia and from one end of the globe to the other.”
—Sir Simon Schama, author of The Story of the Jews

“A tour de force. Hugely ambitious, erudite and filled with surprises. This puts the family and families back into the heart of history.”
Peter Frankopan, New York Times best-selling author of Silk Roads
 
“Compelling, moving, epic, and diverse, Montefiore’s wonderful storytelling prowess and wide research pulls off this unparalleled world history in a single narrative with unforgettable style. All the drama of humankind is here from cavemen to Putin and Zelensky.” 
Olivette Otele, author of African Europeans

“One word for Montefiore’s book: magisterial.” 
Ben Okri, Booker Prize–winning author of The Famished Road
 
“In this work of astonishing scope and erudition, Simon Sebag Montefiore interweaves the stories of the servants, courtiers, and kings, pioneers, preachers, and philosophers who have made history. A brilliant synthesis that will impart fresh insight to even the most learned readers.” 
Henry Kissinger, former U.S. Secretary of State
