Cynthia Stokes Brown, a professor and popular author, explains how she came to write about Big History in this episode of Berkshire Bookworld. Big History is the study of how we all got here, from the Big Bang to the present day, and Cynthia has written and coauthored three books on the subject, including a textbook she wrote with David Christian and Craig Benjamin.

In this podcast, you’ll find out why her new book, Big History, Small World: From the Big Bang to You, published by Berkshire, is different, and why Cynthia has devoted herself to teaching this biggest of all histories. Big History, Small World is designed for those completely new to the subject, not only high school students but any reader who wants to know more about how we got here and what we know about the challenges that face all of us, across the globe, in the twenty-first century. We’ll be back with Cynthia next week to discuss how to bring big history into the classroom.
