History • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1983

Daniel Boorstin, former Librarian of the Library of Congress, gives a fascinating history of world civilization in The Discoverers. Learn how astronomy developed and how it helped sailors and map makers. Boorstin tells of the development of microscopes, telescopes, medicine, vaccines, the understanding of genetics from the study of plants and many other scientific and cultural subjects. Christopher Cazenove reads this work in a clear, even voice that holds the listener's attention. There is no dialogue and no need for characterization. The recording is clean and indicates the end of each side. This audiobook is only a small portion of The Discoverers and will whet your appetite for the printed work.
