“This one-volume 576-page edition of A STUDY OF HISTORY puts the essence of the great work into easily accessible and most attractive form. (The original totals more than 7,000 pages.) Moreover, as Dr. Toynbee’s foreword makes clear, the new book is more than an abridgment of the original. He has extensively redrafted, revised, and updated his history, to take note of new historical events and discoveries and to include his own ‘reconsiderations’ of his concepts. The new edition is also the first to be illustrated. There are more than 500 historical pictures. Here, in sum, is a brilliant history and great scholarly work, in wonderfully readable form.”
