Synopsis: Books from every field of human creativity and intellectual endeavor - from poetry to politics, from fiction to philosophy, from theology to anthropology, and from economics to physics – have been selected to create a rounded and satisfying picture of how 50 towering achievements of the human intellect have built our societies, shaped our values, enhanced our understanding of the nature of the world, enabled technological advancements, and reflected our concerns and dilemmas, strengths and failings. In a series of engaging and lively essays, Andrew Taylor sets each work and its author firmly in historical context, summarizes the content of the work in question, and explores its wider influence and legacy. A fascinating and richly informative read.

About the Author: Andrew Taylor has worked as a journalist in television, newspapers and magazines in Britain and the Middle East and is a regular columnist for the Sunday Times. His authorial credits include The World of Gerard Mercator and A Plum in Your Mouth.
