Correct Answer : Option (D) - Simon Sebag Montefiore

Award-winning historian and novelist "Simon Sebag Montefiore" takes the road less travelled for his new book, "The World: A Family History", as he tells the story of humanity from prehistory to the present day through the one thing that all humans have in common: family.
The two-part book, published by Hachette India, claims to capture the story of humankind in “a ground-breaking, single narrative that will forever shift the boundaries of what history can achieve”.
It is scheduled to release on November 21, 2022.
Beginning with the footsteps of a family walking along a beach 9,50,000 years ago, Montefiore takes the readers on an epic journey through the families that have shaped the world, including the Caesars, Medicis, Incas, Ottomans, Mughals, Bonapartes, Habsburgs, Zulus, Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Krupps and Churchills.
"This is world history on the grandest and intimate scale – spanning centuries, continents and cultures, and linking grand themes of war, migration, plague, religion, medicine and technology to the people at the center of the human drama."..
