Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Two distinguished historians express their evaluation of the nature of the human experience and what may be learned from it, in a concise history of the world based on their magnum opus The Story of Civilization. Book available. Read by Grover Gardner.


Review:

"[This] is a modest, balanced and helpful statement of the beliefs and values that have resulted from the Durants' immersion in historical investigation these many years. Here are their fair-mindedness, their respect for human dignity, their exaltation of reason, their horror of bigotry and their faith in education as the clue to the betterment of the human condition. To be sure, their book is not without a few weaknesses...[However, this] will be a welcome book to the host of readers who have been encouraged to explore the past because of the extraordinary ability of the Durants to inspire them."

New York Times Book Review, September 15, 1968
