About the book:

Quite an wonderful, and extensive, work. Wells takes the reader through human civilization, admittedly from the viewpoint of Europeanism, from the paleolithic to the end of WW1 and the League of Nations. He reviews the origins of the "great" religions; Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism, and explains their doctrines and the ways in which religion has poisoned the original assertions, and the reasons and benefits of its arising, of each faith. The final chapter is exceptional in its describing the benefits of civilization which has evolved beyond dogma, warfare, empire, and ignorance. A great read and extremely informative close to , but not quite on, the level of Gibbon
