9781602069312: A Short History of the World
Présentation de l'éditeur :

This book contains H. G. Wells’s 1922 non-fiction historic work, "A Short History of the World". It constitutes a comprehensive summary of contemporary scientific knowledge concerning the history of life on Earth - that starts with its origins and goes on to explore the development of humankind and the birth of civilisation. This fascinating text is recommended for those with an interest in the history of human existence and the development of related scientific theory, and it is not to be missed by fans of Wells’s seminal work. The chapters of this volume include: “The World in Space”, “The World in Time”, “The Beginnings of Life”, “The Age of Fishes”, “The Age of the Coal Swamps”, “The Age of Reptiles”, “The First Birds and the First Mammals”, The Age of Mammals”, etcetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a seminal English writer whose notable works include "The War of the Worlds" (1897) and "The Time Machine" (1895). Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.

Biographie de l'auteur :

H. G. Wells was a professional writer and journalist, who published more than a hundred books, including novels, histories, essays and programmes for world regeneration. Wells's prophetic imagination was first displayed in pioneering works of science fiction, but later he became an apostle of socialism, science and progress. His controversial views on sexual equality and the shape of a truly developed nation remain directly relevant to our world today. He was, in Bertrand Russell's words, 'an important liberator of thought and action'.

Description du livre COSIMO CLASSICS, United States, 2007. Hardback. État : New. 231 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. When H. G. Wells published this popular history of planet Earth in 1922, the highest off the surface humans had reached was seven miles, barely 37,000 feet; the best guess at the planet s age was merely more than 2 billion years; the beginnings of organic life on Earth were still little understood. But with all the confidence of his immense genius and wide-ranging appreciation for all things scientific, Wells presents a readable, concise survey of the state of knowledge at his time about the planet and human presence upon it. Wells asks that you read this hefty 1922 work-adapted from his two-volume Outline of History, published in 1920- straightforwardly almost as a novel is read, and indeed, this story of Earth, from its very formation and the first appearance of homo sapiens through the Russian Revolution and the reconstruction after World War I, reads like the most thrilling adventure story ever told. Though it has been factually supplanted by scholarship that came after it, this remains an engaging history, a classic of science fact from one of the fathers of modern science fiction. British author HERBERT GEORGE WELLS (1866-1946) is best known for his groundbreaking science fiction novels The Time Machine (1895), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898).
