    Sinopse

    This dramatic narrative of breathtaking scope and riveting focus puts the 'story' back into history. It is the saga of how the most ambitious of big ideas - that a world made up of many nations can govern itself peacefully - has played out over the millennia. Humankind's 'Great Experiment' goes back to the most ancient of days - literally to the Garden of Eden - and into the present, with an eye to the future.
    Strobe Talbott looks back to the consolidation of tribes into nations - starting with Israel - and the absorption of those nations into the empires of Hammurabi, the Pharaohs, Alexander, the Caesars, Charlemagne, Genghis Khan, the Ottomans, and the Hapsburgs, through incessant wars of territory and religion, to modern alliances andthe global conflagrations of the twentieth century. He traces the breakthroughs and breakdowns of peace along the way: the Pax Romana, the Treaty of Westphalia, the Concert of Europe, the false start of the League of Nations, the creation of the flawed but indispensable United Nations, the effort to build a "new world order" after the cold war, and America's unique role in modern history as 'the master builder' of the international system.
