Hey all,

There was a book of world history was published in the U.S. not that long ago. It was a best seller in other countries for many years and had been unavailable here until now. I believe the author of it had died fairly recently, within the last 5 or so years. I remember articles being written about it when it came out and I never looked much further into it, but I was thinking of maybe picking it up as a gift for someone. The trouble is, I can't find the name of the damn book. Does anyone know which one I'm trying to describe?

J. M. Robert's "History of the World". He revised it in 2003 shortly before dying.
