In this unique book, leading writers and scholars from twenty-eight countries give thoughtful, engaging accounts of their own nations history. The countries have been selected to represent every continent and every type of state: large and small; mature democracies and religious autocracies; states that have existed for centuries and those born recently, making up two-thirds of the worlds population.
