In this enlightening and thoughtful book, Will and Ariel Durant succeeded in distilling for the reader the accumulated knowledge and experience of their five decades of work on the eleven monumental volumes of the history of civilizations.The result is a study of human history, full of dazzling insights into the nature of human experience, the evolution of civilization and the culture of mankind.With the completion of the work of their life, they look back and ask what history has to say about the nature, conduct and perspectives of mankind, seeking in the great life, great ideas, great events of the past for the meaning of man’s long journey through war, conquest and creation – and for the great themes that can help us to understand our own time.
