Roberts, a well-known professor at Oxford, here presents over five thousand years of major historic “processes.” His style is clear and the material well organized. However, this is basically a textbook and is a bit dry. (The print original is 1,004 pages.) Davidson’s reading of this behemoth is actually a nice match of text and reader. His voice is clear and easily understood, and his good sense of pacing helps make this work as interesting as it can be. Indeed, his voice, delivery and pacing are consistent throughout this recording, which is quite a feat in itself. This work is for those who really want to listen to it.
