Maps of time an introduction to big history by David Christian ( )
37 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 2,949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An introduction to a new way of looking at history, from a perspective that stretches from the beginning of time to the present day, Maps of Time is world history on an unprecedented scale. Beginning with the Big Bang, David Christian views the interaction of the natural world with the more recent arrivals in flora and fauna, including human beings. Cosmology, geology, archeology, and population and environmental studies--all figure in David Christian's account, which is an ambitious overview of the emerging field of "Big History." Maps of Time opens with the origins of the universe, the stars

Living water : vodka and Russian society on the eve of emancipation by David Christian ( Book )

This title provides a study of the social, economic and political role of vodka in 19th century Russia. It focuses on the 'Great Reforms' of the 1860s, in some ways a parallel period to the glasnost of the 1980s, when vodka went through a transitional period, with the abolition of vodka tax
Imperial and Soviet Russia : power, privilege, and the challenge of modernity by David Christian ( Book )
15 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is impossible to make sense of the modern world without understanding the vast, and ultimately unsuccessful, experiment with Communism that began in Russia in 1917. Imperial and Soviet Russia offers a coherent interpretation of the turbulent history of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union during the last two centuries. Tracing the roots of the Communist experiment in the peasant world of traditional Russia, it shows how the harsh social and economic changes of the nineteenth century created enough dislocation to topple the tsarist regime and bring the Bolsheviks to power in 1917

This fleeting world : a short history of humanity by David Christian ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A great historian can make clear the connections between the first Homo sapiens and today's version of the species, and a great storyteller can make those connections come alive. David Christian is both, and This Fleeting World: A Short History of Humanity, makes the journey--from the earliest foraging era to the agrarian era to our own modern era--a fascinating one. Ready to help your students give up their preconceptions that anything old is probably boring? Enter This Fleeting World."--From publisher description
