Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2011. Beginning with an unlikely stowaways account of life on board Noahs Ark, A History of the World in 10 Chapters presents a surprising and subversive fictional-history of earth told from several kaleidoscopic perspectives. Noah disembarks from his ark but he and his Voyage are not forgotten- they are revisited in on other centuries and other climes - by a Victorian spinster mourning her father, by an American astronaut on an obsessive personal mission. We journey to the Titanic, to the Amazon, to the raft of the Medusa, and to an ecclesiastical court in medieval France where a bizarre case is about to begin...This is no ordinary history, but something stranger; a challenge and a delight for the readers imagination. Ambitious yet accessible, witty and playfully serious, this is the work of a brilliant novelist.

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. Plain Tales from the Hills was his first volume of prose fiction. Vignettes of life in British India give vivid insights into Anglo-India at work and play, and into the character of the Indians themselves. Witty, wry, sometimes cynical, these tales with their brevity and concentration of effect are landmarks in the history of the short story as an art-form.

This yearbook is the fourth in the series with the title Globalistics and Globalization Studies. The subtitle of the present volume is Global History & Big History. The point is that today our global world really demands global knowledge. Thus, there are a few actively developing multidisciplinary approaches and integral disciplines among which one can name Global Studies, Global History and Big History. They all provide a connection between the past, present, and future. Big History with its vast and extremely heterogeneous field of research encompasses all the forms of existence and all timescales and brings together constantly updated information from the scientific disciplines and the humanities. Global History is transnational or world history which examines history from a global perspective, making a wide use of comparative history and of the history of multiple cultures and nations. Global Studies express the view of systemic and epistemological unity of global processes. Thus, one may argue that Global Studies and Globalistics can well be combined with Global History and Big History and such a multi-disciplinary approach can open wide horizons for the modern university education as it helps to form a global view of various processes.

Daniel Defoe was an English trader, writer, pamphleteer and journalist. He is most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe, which is second only to the Bible in its number of translations. Irreverent and ironic, The Political History of the Devil is a satire that examines the evolution of evil and the rise of the historical force known as the devil. An overview of satanic influences on eighteenth-century life follows, focusing on monarchs and tyrants as well as common folk. Defoe supports his arguments not only with extensive quotes from scripture but also with citations from other sources, including Miltons Paradise Lost.
Daniel Defoe was an English trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer and spy. General scholarly opinion is that Defoe really did think of the Devil as a participant in world history. His view is that of an 18th-century Presbyterian - he blames the Devil for the Crusades and sees him as close to Europes Catholic powers.
