'Gripping, enthralling, a great read ... a fragrant stew of history, literature and travel spiced with digression, detective work and dabs of humour.' - Sarah Wheeler, The Observer Human history is a tale not just of constant change, but of perpetual restlessness. In Beneath Another Sky, the esteemed historian Norman Davies embarks upon a journey round the world to show the layers of experience that underpin our present - and brilliantly complicate our view of the past. The fruits of a 'last adventure', a voyage that took Davies on an incredibly rich, perspective-altering global tour, Beneath Another Sky captures both the historian's extraordinary learning and his irresistible sense of wonder at the breadth and complexity of our society. From the histories of the Americas to issues as current as the vanishing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, this is the world in a nutshell, in the company of one of its greatest - and most idiosyncratic - chroniclers.
