A Study of History

Abridgement of Volumes I-VI

Arnold J. Toynbee
Abridgement by D.C. Somervell

Royal Institute of International Affairs

Acknowledged as one of the greatest achievements of modern scholarship, Arnold Toynbee's A Study of History consists of a ten-volume analysis of the rise and fall of human civilizations. Contained in two volumes, D.C. Somervell's abridgement of this magnificent enterprise preserves the method, atmosphere, texture, and, in many instances, the very words of the original.
