Summary
Inspired by antique maps and the mapmakers' global vision, this book presents the past as a single narrative in which European history is an offshoot of Asian history. The author explains that the dominating ethos of the modern West owes more to hordes of Asian nomads who colonised Europe than to the classical civilisation of the Greeks and Romans
