From Library Journal

This series of 13 essays on the themes and underlying lessons of history was originally written as part of the authors' 11-volume The Story of Civilization (1935-75). The Durants begin by summarizing periods and trends in history. They examine morals and draw conclusions by looking into changes in economics, politics, military customs, and even geographic location. Russ Holcomb reads these essays in a clear, pleasant voice, bringing life and interest to this brief overview of 5000 years of history. For general collections.

"The Durants' masterpiece belongs in any home library and occupies a shelf in many."

--Dana D. Kelley, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Profound insight into the nature of man. 14. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This book was assigned reading for an MBA program I took in 1983.For the first time I was presented with the ideas that described how we fit in the universe along with why we behave as we do.I was in my late 30's , an engineer by trade.I knew the historical behavior patterns of our numerous societies over the spectrum of recorded history, yet had failed to reduce these observations to a lowest common denominator.
Will and Ariel Durant segment our history and nature into basic, simple to read chapters, that explain in simple terms how societies have strived to achieve the Utopias we all dream of.
I was stunned at how history repeats itself and humbled at the fact that "the foibles of mans dreams" are the same today as they were a thousand years ago.
If your ego has convinced you that solutions to the challenges of society are within the grasp of our lives today,don't read this book!
On the other hand,if you are prepared to recognize that our species is nothing more than 4000 years of recorded history compared with 14,000,000 years of evolutionary development,sit back and enjoy!
This is not a book for individuals who have "new PC ideas as to the nature of mankind".They will find that their ideas are same-o,same-o.
Will and Ariel summerize a huge work in one volume that can be read in a day.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The first reference point for any thinker 15. Dezember 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is an almost impossibly concise summary of the human condition. It covers everything, to a level of detail that tantalises the reader, enticing them to read further into the text, and more by the same author(s). It is an excellent introduction to history and the philosophy of history. An absolute must for any serious historian, or anyone with a heathly interest in the subject.

The Durant's have captured the essence of the human experience throughout history. Although I have not yet read 'The Story of Civilisation' (which I plan to address), this book has opened my eyes to the world in which we live. The themes distilled in this wonderful book will surely awaken the dullest mind.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good, but didn't meet expectations. 27. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I am a great fan of Will Durant. I have read several of the volumes from the "Story of Civilization" series. This book is enjoyable, but lacks the insight and depth that his other books show. His conclusions are true, but not new.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Provoked class Discussions and learning! 12. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
My teacher played us the tapes of "The Lessons of History" by Will Durant. At first my classmates and I did not enjoy listening and taking notes because we didn't completely understand it....but then mmy teacher would stop the tape and we would go over our notes and discuss it. This really made me understand what Durant was talking about and I agree with alot of the inferences that he made. Durant's essay's are a great way to provoke discussions at the begining of the year to get your class ready to share their ideas with the class all year.
