Book Description :

Throughout their stellar careers, Will and Ariel Durant were often queried on what lessons history had to teach us. Their answers offer a unique window through which to better view the nature of man is brilliantly illuminated. The absolute best of these conversations have now been brought together in this volume, offering a profound insight into the Durant's lives, the creation of their greatest books and their own personal philosophy of life. The topics the Durants discuss are profoundly important today and represent the distilled wisdom of their more than half-century of scholarship in the history of the world and the ideas of man, including the lessons we can (and in some cases must) learn from history in the realms of: -Civilization -Earth -Biology -Race -Gender -Character -Morals -Religion -Government -Community -Time & Space -Art -War -Freedom -Justice -Growth & Decay -Progress -The meaning of history Also included are rare autobiographical insights into the Durant's personal life, revealed in profound and compelling dialogues in which they discuss with characteristic wit and fondness their early years together and the story of their love and marriage (which lasted 68 - until their deaths a mere two weeks apart in 1981), as well as the lessons learned from a life-long love affair with the world of ideas.

Book Description :

Unlike any written history, Will Durant wrote his masterpiece, The Story of Civilization, to simplify and encourage history reading. Since quoting is the art of selecting the appropriate, the author chose what is to promote the art of reading among his students. One of the main responsibilities of reading is to leave the accumulation of aquired knowledge to the coming generations, and to open the horizon to people to venture into rational conversations and exchange ideas. As a teacher of English language, with an experience period of more than 30 years, Wadih Barakat took his time to read, quote and reflect on the 11 volumes of The Story of Civilizations to help enlighten the community he is living in, because a real teacher is a real father and a real educadtor.

Book Description :

In the wake of the attacks on New York and Washington many people believe we have entered a new world, but in this thought-provoking and thorough examination of the history of terrorism we can take comfort from the fact that we have been in this new world before - and survived. By drawing on the examples of history from the ancient, mediaeval and early modern worlds, Caleb Carr demonstrates how attempts to control civilian populations with the use of terror grew into a persistent problem in human history. Moving forward into more recent times he then demonstrates how and why such tactics have consistently failed their perpetrators - from the British scorched earth policy during the American War of Independence to terror at sea during WWI to the Japanese rape of China in WWII to the war in Vietnam and, ultimately, to the actions of Islamic extremists today. An important and timely book which throws much needed light on many of the questions being posed today.

Book Description :

The ancient Greeks hard†‘wired a tragic sensibility into their culture. By looking disaster squarely in the face, by understanding just how badly things could spiral out of control, they sought to create a communal sense of responsibility and courage—to spur citizens and their leaders to take the difficult actions necessary to avert such a fate. Today, after more than seventy years of great†‘power peace and a quarter†‘century of unrivaled global leadership, Americans have lost their sense of tragedy. They have forgotten that the descent into violence and war has been all too common throughout human history. This amnesia has become most pronounced just as Americans and the global order they created are coming under graver threat than at any time in decades. In a forceful argument that brims with historical sensibility and policy insights, two distinguished historians argue that a tragic sensibility is necessary if America and its allies are to address the dangers that menace the international order today. Tragedy may be commonplace, Brands and Edel argue, but it is not inevitable—so long as we regain an appreciation of the world’s tragic nature before it is too late.
