Command to list our directory size

Is there any command that can list out all the files size including directory in 1 command?
`ls` will only give 2048 for a directory, which i'm looking for the actual size.
# 2  
Code:
 
du -h directoryname | awk '{a=$1}END{print a}'

# 3  
Code:
 
#du -sh <dirname>

is enough I guess..


Illustration:-

Code:
 
#ls -ld zones
drwxr-xr-x   4 root     root         512 Mar  4  2009 zones
# du -sh zones
  14G   zones

# 4  
Code:
du -ah directoryName

# 5  
is there something like ls -l which list out all the information as well?

'du' seems like cannot support a path.
eg: du -ah /tmp/abc
use
Code:
du -ah ./tmp/abc
