about this item

Join TIME for a grand tour of civilization's most important landmarks. Here is a "bucket list" for the intellectually curious, a lavishly illustrated survey of the places where history was forged-where influential battles were fought, where empires rose and fell, where religions were founded and artistic renaissances flourished. This book is for readers fascinated by history and art, culture and society, politics and religion. We'll tour Moscow's Kremlin and Beijing's Forbidden City. We'll trace the caravans along the Silk Road, gaze at the stars with Babylonian magi, dispute ethics at the Acropolis. Here are the 100 "must see" places for any well-traveled earthling. How many have you seen?
