From the makers of BBC History Magazine comes BBC World Histories! It is a brand new title bringing you fresh perspectives on our global past – and how it shapes our lives today. One of the inspirations behind this new magazine is to understand how we got to where we are by exploring the stories of the past. Each issue will feature the expertise of leading writers and historians from across the globe to bring you lesser-known stories and to help tackle some of the defining issues of the 21st century.
