    Essential History

    HG Wells' Outline of History is the best and most important history book I've ever read, 'BA in history and political science 25 years ago, and still an avid student of these subjects'. Offers essential insight into where the human race has come from, which is key to understanding where we are and where we are going.

    Wells' Mediterranean Race

    H. G. Wells¿ darkish, brownish, Mediterranean, Caucasian race was really Ethiopian, the reason why their southern boundaries merged with his darker African Negro race, an observation that takes forever to hone, seeing it but not recognizing it for years, until that awareness-light turns on and the code is broken. Thank you, Mr. Wells, for those well hidden little gems. Putting them right in front of us was the perfect hiding place. Had you only known, would you have been so generous with your praise?

    Just what it says it is; an outline of History.

    I've known about this book fot years but could never find it. I'm glad I finally did. I've always felt that History when it is well written is exciting to read. History when it is poorly written is a chore to read. Welles' History proves that he was a great writer. This is exciting and fun to read. Although he is very critical of Alexander, Julius Caesar, and Rome.

    Very interesting - easily worth the price.

    Very good overview that gets into more depth as it gets closer to more modern times.
