History • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1968

This summary of the history of civilization is jam packed with information and conclusions complete on 3 CDs. Written in 1968, some of the conclusions about where society and the world are going are very dated, especially comments about economics, computers and communication. Read in a no nonsense manner, there are noticeable fluctuations in volume within paragraphs and from disc to disc, made more noticeable by the lack of background hiss. The narrator tends to swallow the ends of sentences. Nevertheless, this summation of The Lessons of History that wraps up The Story of Civilization sheds light on trends and themes of various aspects of society including war, economics, systems of government and technology.
