Seller Rating: 5-star rating

Book Description: 5 1/2" x 8 5/8", vii, 408 pp., each chapter head has a woodcut-type heading illustration. Dark blue, ribbed cloth with titles gilt on front cover & with blindstamped Longmans' ship seal on spine; top edge stained yellow. No dustjacket. Fore-edge shows slight tanning, overall, a near fine (probably unread) copy. An important book of its day, which is uncommon in the first U.S. printing. Contents: Introduction: Charles A. Beard; I. The Civilizations of the East and the West: Hu Shih; II. Ancient and Mediaeval Civilizations: Hendrik Willem van Loon; III. Science: Bertrand Russell; IV. Business: Julius Klein; V. Labor Sidney and Beatrice Webb; VI. Law and Government: Howard Lee McBain; VII. War and Peace: Emil Ludwig; VIII. Health: C.-E. A. Winslow; IX. The Family: Havelock Ellis; X. Race and Civilization: George A. Dorsey; XI. Religion: James Harvey Robinson; XII. The Arts: Lewis Mumford; XIII. Philosophy: John Dewey; XIV. Play: Stuart Chase; XV. Education: Everett Dean Martin; XVI. Literature: Carl Van Doren; Epilogue: Charles A. Beard. This volume is a challenge, not a summary of fragile dubiosities. No mystery hangs over it. Underlying it is the assumption that science and the machine are two invincible facts with which all must reckon who write, teach, preach, lead, or practice the arts in our time. Those who refuse to face them are condemned in advance to sterility and defeat. While recognizing the evils brought by these modern engines evils which weigh heavily in the minds of the authors the volume as a whole rejects the pessimistic views of writers like Chesterton, Belloc, and Spengler. For visions of despair, it substitutes a more cheerful outlook upon the future of modern civilization, without at the same time resorting to the optimism of the real-estate agent. (from the Preface, p. v.). Seller Inventory # ABE-198273415
