Melvyn Bragg delves into twelve of the essential books that he believes have changed the world. The impact of certain books is like that of the asteroid which destroyed the dinosaurs: an epoch-defining moment which ends the old world, and ushers in the new. Geographical contours may shape the physical world, but the intellectual contours in which six billion people live, are all shaped by books.
