Summary
In 1921, Will Durant began his five-decade-long series, The Story of Civilization. Joined later by his wife, Ariel, the two labored together to create one of the twentieth-century's most enduring masterworks of history for the general reader. With the 11 volumes that comprise this remarkable undertaking -- enhanced by the enthralling scholarship and eloquent prose that are the hallmark of their work -- the Durants have woven a fascinating tapestry of mankind's historical and cultural achievements spanning 10,000 years into a compelling narrative.--From publisher's description
