Overview

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 forward makes clear, the new book is more than an abridgment of the original. He has extensively redrafted, revised, and updated history, to take note of new historical events and discoveries and to include his own "reconsiderations" of his concept.

The new edition is also the first to be illustrated. There are more than 500 historical pictures, many reproduced in color and all selected by Dr. Toynbee with the assistance of Jane Caplan, his collaborator on the project. Miss Caplan has written the excellent captions for the pictures, which are closely coordinated with the text.
