This issue introduces readers to some of history’s greatest villains, from Herod the Great, Biblical despot who built a powerful kingdom but murdered his wife, children and rivals, to Blackbeard, 18th-century pirate whose ruthless actions terrorized the American coastline. Lighter figures are also featured, including George Parker, who repeatedly sold the Brooklyn Bridge, Butch Cassidy, who robbed trains and banks with few casualties, and Elmry de Hory, perhaps the most successful art forger ever to have lived. The final section of the issue reviews the latest history books, apps, and exhibitions on tour.

                The articles that were in there were interesting, but there were only four actual articles of any length. It was good, but I was expecting more.

                    It's nice to read about the rogues of history and to get a bit of perspective on them. Sometimes the myths take over and a reality check is a good thing. Could have had more detail, but it's a short book.

                    The Concise History of World Religions continues the Concise History series with an authoritative and comprehensive take on major religions and lesser-known faiths of all times and nations. No other text combines the illustration expertise of National Geographic with the historical focus on faiths—large and small—across the world. Up-to-date scholarship offers a unique global perspective on the history of faith in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Oceania, and Africa and the Middle East. This is religion presented as history, in the objective manner in which the National Geographic Society excels. Lavish illustrations illuminate the faithful, their houses of worship, and the articles and artifacts of faith. From the great cathedrals to the colorful robes of Buddhist monks to horrors of the Spanish inquisition to the astonishingly intricate paintings of the Hindu gods, the illustrations tell as much of the story as the text.

                    From the dawn of humankind to today's global complexities, this monumental volume presents world history from an original perspective that provides fresh insights with every colorful spread. Few references are as invaluable, all-inclusive, and satisfying to browse. For readers of all ages, world history is easily accessible, depicted as never before—so that events occurring simultaneously around the world can be viewed at-a-glance together. For example, Texas Instruments launched the pocket calculator the same year the Soviet Union launched the first manned space station, in 1971. Columbus sailed from Spain the year Martin Behaim constructed a terrestrial globe in Nuremberg. The California Gold Rush followed the Irish Potato Famine in the 1840s, and the Greek dictatorship of Papadopoulos was overthrown the same year Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia was deposed and U.S. president Nixon resigned, in 1974. The book's innovative time line truly sets it apart, allowing readers to scan across a spread and explore a single area or compare contemporary societies across the globe.
