  • the rise and spread of major language groups (illustrated with original maps)
  • an examination of civilizations, farmers and pastoralists from 3000 BCE to 500 CE
  • trade patterns including the early Silk Road and maritime trade in the Mediterranean and Indian Ocean
  • the effect of migration on empire and industry between 1700 and 1900
  • the resurgence of migration in the later twentieth century, including movement to cities, refugees and diasporas
