Crowdsourced History Reading — TA’s List No. 1: Bulk Entries and Basics

I’m going to split up my submissions for the crowdsourced history reading list initiated by Chris into several topical lists (with cross references), beginning with the authors and book series I’m submitting in toto, as well as some basic reference material.  So:

ALL BOOKS BY …
* Antonia Fraser (women’s history, Tudors & Stuarts)
* Ian Mortimer (British history, particularly Middle Ages)
* Dan Jones (ditto)
* Stanley Wells (Shakespeare — everything from biographies and history to criticism)
* John Julius Norwich (British and Mediterranean history)
* Christopher Hibbert (ditto)
* Jared Diamond (intersection of (world) history, geography, and sociology)

SERIES
* Will Durant, Ariel Durant: The Story of Civilization (11 volumes, Ancient Orient to Age of Napoleon)
* Various Authors: Fischer Weltgeschichte (published elsewhere as Weidenfeld & Nicolson Universal History / Siglo XXI Editores Historia Universal / Storia Universale Feltrinelli, and Bordas / Fayard Histoire Universelle, respectively) (36 vols., prehistory to present day)

BASIC REFERENCE
* Oxford Encyclopedia of World History
* Putzger Atlas der Weltgeschichte (unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge not translated into English — but for my money, one of the best historical cartographical works in existence)
