Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A readable and thoughtful work first published in Great Britain in 1994 by Sinclair-Stevenson, an imprint of Reed Consumer Books, Ltd. Historian Zeldin (Oxford U.) conveys the broad scope of his reflections in chapters with such intriguing titles as: How humans have repeatedly lost hope, and how new encounters, and a new pair of spectacles revive them; How men and women have slowly learned to have interesting conversations; How some people have acquired an immunity to loneliness; Why there has been more progress in cooking than in sex; and How people have freed themselves from fear by finding new fears. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

probably The most sensitive account of Humanity....very educational '(social)-history-wise', i would think it is for the rather esoteric!

THE GREATEST MOST SENSETIVE ACCOUNT EVER OF HUMANS.....PROBABLY A CUT ABOVE HIS 'PEERS'....ZELDIN'S BRAINS MUST BE CHERRISHED AS MOST PRECIOUS ASSET TO HUMANITY!
