The Half (Ignored/Overlooked) Circle of the World

From i09:



About half the world's population live in this circle. Most of the world's Buddhist population and over 40 percent of all Muslims live within the circle as well.  Yet most world history books, while rightly giving detailed attention on the rises, advances, and falls of the Western and Mediterranean civilizations, usually only pay passing reference to Indian and Chinese history.
