Felipe Fernández-Armesto (born 1950) is a British historian and author of several popular works of history.

Felipe Fernandez-Armesto is a national treasure of the British isles. He is one historian-thinker who emerges as non-partisan and straight-forward. While I thoroughly enjoy the works of Paul Johnson and have praised Daniel Boorstin to the skies, there is something magisterial about the author's works. What I like best about this trio is their apparent affinity for describing long arches of history which is not an easy task. Throughout the book the author asks us to project ourselves 10,000 years in the future and imagine what a galactic museum would display as a representation of the past millenium.

Felipe Fernández-Armesto is a professor of history and geography at Queen Mary, University of London, and a member of the Faculty of Modern History of Oxford University. Библиографические данные.

Felipe Fernández-Armesto. This book is an attempt to bring them all together by surveying them in a single conspectus, rather as a world traveler might have done on a grand tour of the world, if such a thing were possible, in 1492-zigzagging around the densely populated band of productive civilizations that stretched around the globe, from the eastern edges of Asia across the Indian.

Fernández-Armesto dazzles with an ever-open eye for effect and the possible television multi-part documentary, which CNN obligingly filmed but botched, since its Millenium series while ostensibly based on this book, actually.

Fernández-Armesto dazzles with an ever-open eye for effect and the possible television multi-part documentary, which CNN obligingly filmed but botched, since its Millenium series while ostensibly based on this book, actually provides an overarching theme for each of the ten centuries it covers in as many episodes -which is precisely the sort of framework the author vowed to keep away. In general, he argues convincingly that, given enough time, the West´s apparent dominion of the world from, say, the seventeenth to the twentieth century, will eventually prove to be ephemeral, modest and more of a delusion than a reality.
