The Story of Civilization, Volume IV
Happy reading, jpp. Carl Because of the way the copyright laws are written in the US, these volumes will continue to covered by copyright for another 65 years. Since the title says 'story of civilization', can we expect much of eastern history in these volumes too?

Unlike their mediaeval prototypes, however, they wed and appear to have been rather happy. They certainly were productive.

Together, they travelled a great deal, visiting many of the places they wrote about in this magisterial eleven volume twelve if you count a companion volume on historiography which I've yet to read history of almost everything. I don't know if it's Ariel's influence, but, unlike H.
Wells' own, much shorter, attempt at a history of human civilization, their work is remarkable for the attention it pays to culture, domestic life and women in addition to the usual account of literate elites and their doings. The first volume, Our Oriental Heritage, Will's work, is the only disappointment.
It attempts to cover both the earliest civilizations and also the history of Asia up to the time of writing. Given the attention paid the West, this is disproportionately little, reflecting either his ignorance or his prejudice.
Indeed, were this volume excluded, it would be almost fair to retitle the whole The Story of Western Civilization. Otherwise this is the best general history of the world I've ever seen. Other, equally long series exist, but they are by multiple authors and therefore lack the single voice or harmonious duo of the Durants. Naturally, specialists will find the sections they know most about inadequate, but for the general reader the work is just right and there are likely few specialist historians who could equal their work overall.
Although long, the reading goes quickly, like a novel. I handled it as bedtime reading over a period of a few months and you can too.

If I had a choice of just 11 books to take into isolation for the rest of my reading days I would take The Story of Civilization by Will and Ariel Durant. Durant began his life as a seminarian. He became a teacher and starting writing, becoming a very successful author penning The Story of Philosophy.
At some point he immersed himself in the history of the world, namely, the history of the European west and the study of western civilization. Imagine that, spending your adult life learning If I had a choice of just 11 books to take into isolation for the rest of my reading days I would take The Story of Civilization by Will and Ariel Durant.
Imagine that, spending your adult life learning about everything and transcribing that knowledge into beautiful authoritative prose. My parents, like so many of their generation, bought the set of books by joining the Book of the Month Club in the 50's and 60's. From time to time I would consult the volumes for school reports and so forth and so on. I became interested in the Story of Civ then and read most of them in the next year or two.
They are well written. They are years old so they creak from time to time.Explaining why they stopped at this point in history, they wrote, "We find ourselves exhausted on reaching the French Revolution.
