Samenvatting

William H. McNeill is known for his ability to portray the grand sweep of history. The Global Condition is a classic work for understanding the grand sweep of world history in brief compass. Now with a new foreword by J. R. McNeill, this book brings together two of William Hardy McNeill's popular short books and an essay. The Human Condition provides a provocative interpretation of history as a competition of parasites, both biological and human; The Great Frontier questions the notion of frontier freedom through an examination of European expansion; the concluding essay speculates on the role of catastrophe in our lives.

Recensie(s)

A remarkable tour de force ... An elegant, intelligent and scholarly essay. --J. H. Hexter, New York Times Book Review A brilliant new interpretation of world history. --David Graber, Los Angeles Times Book Review There is virtually no one in the profession who can match McNeill as a synthesizer--or, for that matter, as an interdisciplinary historian... There is more insight in this volume than in others of double or triple the length. --David Courtwright, Journal of Interdisciplinary History How refreshing in this era of foreboding to read an informed analysis of human prospects ending on a positive note that we are the creators rather than the creatures of our destiny. --L.S. Stavrianos, Journal of World History
