Simon & Schuster US. 1968. Hardcover. 1st edition. Condition: Very Good+. Dustjacket Condition: Very Good.  The interior of this book is near perfect with the exception of some staining to the front endpaper likely from two newspaper clippings being stored there. The clippings are from The New York Times in 1981 who documented the passing of Ariel Durant and the passing of her husband Will Durant two weeks later. From Wikipedia: The book provides a summary of periods and trends in history they had noted upon completion of their momentous eleven-volume The Story of Civilization. Will Durant stated that he and Ariel "made note of events and comments that might illuminate present affairs, future probabilities, the nature of man, and the conduct of states."[1] Thus, the book presents an overview of the themes and lessons observed from 5,000 years of world history, examined from 12 perspectives: geography, biology, race, character, morals, religion, economics, socialism, government, war, growth and decay, and progress. 1.
