The Rise & Fall of the Great Powers [Paul Kennedy]

The Rise & Fall of the Great Powers: Economic Change & Military Conflict from 1500 to 2000 - Paul M. Kennedy

This book spans 500 years of history and includes Russia, China, Japan, England, France, Germany, Italy and the United States. There are mentions of wars, military, economy, politics, military tech, population, and culture to name a few things. It's well written and interesting, but it's too much information and I've decided that I prefer history books that focus on one area and a relatively small time frame (a 100 years in England, for example)
