An excellent history--well written and engaging. The biases are almost quaint in their pre-PC openness. It made me wonder how our historians will sound to people in 80 years.

It's interesting to read a history written in the 30s before so much had changed. I think I didn't realize consciously how much had changed until I read this. But I think I'm jumping ahead to the second volume which I am now reading.

“Men wiser and more learned than I have discerned in history a plot, a rhythm, a predetermined pattern. These harmonies are concealed from me. I can see only one emergency following upon another as wave follows upon wave, only one great fact with respect to which, since it is unique, there can be no generalizations; only one safe rule for the historian: that he should recognize in the development of human destinies the play of the contingent and the unforeseen.” 2 likes
