Human beings have at least one thing in common: family. In his ambitious, scintillating, and epic work The World: A Family History, historian Simon Sebag Montefiore tells the story of humanity through the lens of dynasties; spanning centuries, continents, and cultures. From the Medicis to the Mughals, and from the Assads to the Zulus, Montefiore presents a small selection of the families that have shaped our world. In conversation with Bidisha Mamata.
