HASH(0x8d9ca990) von 5 Sternen I wish I had discovered the Durants years ago 27. Oktober 2013
Von Nick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Without a doubt, The Story of Civilization series of books should go down as one of the finest endeavors of human literature. It's not perfect, but if you were waiting for a perfect history book, it would never be written.

The book's timespan covers roughly 800 BC to 300 AD and focuses on Rome and the early days of Christianity. And at over 700 pages, there's not a single dull or boring page. I've read books on Rome in the past, but history books sometimes tend to get to indepth or become unreadable. This was the first book for Rome that's ever made the things I've read over the years "click."

The strength of the book is the storytelling. It's one thing to recite facts, but it's another to tell me about the people like Julius Caesar and give me an understanding as to why he chose some of the things he did. It humanized him for me.

The latter part of the book focuses on the origins of Christianity, starting with Jesus and leading up to around 300 AD. I'm not a religious person, so I don't have that level of indoctrination regarding Christianity, but it did help me start to fill in the blanks and understand why Jesus had revolutionary beliefs, and how his Apostles and how the Church expanded while Rome collapsed under its own weight in the background.

After this third book on the Story series, I've come to realize how amazing the Durants were, and how much work and brainpower it took to accomplish these books. It makes me realize that I wish I had discovered them years ago. I wish I could thank them for their work.

HASH(0x8d9d03f0) von 5 Sternen It doesn't get any better 7. November 2012
Von Lady Elysa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Will Durant's writing style is anything but dry, he brings to live the time period and the way people lived, the way society operated. I love his whole set and hope to own them all eventually. I got this one to learn the background of my roleplay in the time period of 47 BC in ancient Rome, and it's enabled me to understand the society, to create a believeable backstory, and to bring depth and life to my roleplay in this era. It's helped me more than gazillion wiki sites I've been to trying to learn more... this has become my all in one roleplay manual on ancient Rome!

HASH(0x8d9d02d0) von 5 Sternen Learning history and enjoying it 9. Januar 2013
Von Malkiel Jonas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Reading Will Durant's works is going beyond the study of history and philosophy. You may call it a pleasure in enjoying literature as well.

HASH(0x8d9d03c0) von 5 Sternen Well worth the effort to complete 26. Januar 2014
Von JParks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Will Durant was not a concise historian. He did not see the history of humanity as a series of scattered conquests of monarchs or states with stagnation and dullness in between great wars.
Instead, he saw eras for what they were: epochs in which human beings lived their entire lives. History is the history of people, not the reigns of monarchs unless the reigns of said monarchs impact the lives of the people.

Thus, he paints as comprehensive a story of history as is possible. One can't help but be awed by the depth of his knowledge. In Caesar and Christ, he traces the interweaving histories of Rome and Christianity. But this is not just a narrative on the expansion of Roman borders. It is the life of the people who lived in those times, and how the rise of empire altered the way people lived.

Topics studied include:
the Arts in all their forms; pottery, literature, sculpture
family organization, marriage, leisure, societal organization
Roman government, the constitution and its alterations both from internal pressures and external conflict
Religion
Philosophy

It is my opinion, through my own studies, that anyone who has read any other book on the Roman Empire is an amateur. Only once you have read Durant with his fullness of scope, can one become an expert.

Will Durant is not a concise historian. Instead. he breathes life into a once-dead era, and through the thoroughness and breadth of scope gives us a far more comprehensive view of an era in history than any chronicle of a military campaign can ever do.

HASH(0x8d9cf2e8) von 5 Sternen History comes alive. 4. März 2013
Von terry anthony - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Will Durant writes history like no one else. He takes serious subjects, researches them well, and he adds his own very amusing insights into the narrative. It all comes alive in his prose.
