Publisher Description

A concise survey of the culture and civilization of mankind, The Lessons of History is the result of a lifetime of research from Pulitzer Prize–winning historians Will and Ariel Durant.

With their accessible compendium of philosophy and social progress, the Durants take us on a journey through history, exploring the possibilities and limitations of humanity over time. Juxtaposing the great lives, ideas, and accomplishments with cycles of war and conquest, the Durants reveal the towering themes of history and give meaning to our own.

The Lessons of History

Remarkable in its scope and depth. Fascinating to hear the author speak in his own voice. Even though Will Durant died over 30 years ago his thoughts and perspectives about history are almost prescient as they relate to today's world.

Deep overview

An enjoyable read. Filled with deep analyses and author’s perspectives. It is difficult to agree with them all but each takeaway makes the reader ponder and develop perspectives where they might not have had any. Highly recommended.
