Acknowledged as one of the greatest achievements of modern scholarship, Arnold Toynbee's A Study of History is 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. First published in 1947 and 1957, these two volumes are themselves a great historical achievement. Volume 2, which abridges Volumes VII-X of Toynbee's study, includes sections on Universal States, Universal Churches, Heroic Ages, Contacts Between Civilizations in Space, Contacts Between Civilizations in Time, Law and Freedom in HIstory, The Prospects of the Western Civilization, and the Conclusion.

more analysis of role of religions in rise and fall of civilizations and vice versa
  ritaer | Aug 24, 2021 |
Definitely better than volumes I-VI, but you can tell that it was written in the 1940s. Toynbee's understanding of non-western civilizations seems sketchy. He seems to be more interested in driving his personal religious agenda than in explaining history as objectively as possible.

The starting-point of this book was a search for fields of historical study which would be intelligible in themselves within their own limits of space and time, without reference to extraneous historical events.

This Work is Volume 2 only (Volumes VII-X) of Somervell's abridgement of Toynbee's A Study of History. It should not be combined with either Volume 1 or Somervell's complete 2-volume abridgement, nor should it be combined with any other abridgement or any individual volumes of Toynbee's unabridged Work. Thank you.

Acknowledged as one of the greatest achievements of modern scholarship, Arnold Toynbee's A Study of History is a ten-volume analysis of the rise and fall of human civilizations.
