Keith Rankin: Out of Eden; a Multi-Millennial Story

- While the millennium year didn't exactly feature a surfeit of historical reflection or futurist speculation, history is nevertheless making a bit of a comeback, in particular through biographies that are as much about past times as they are about their subjects.
