The outline of history, being a plain history of life and mankind by H. G Wells( Book )

358 editions published between 1919 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 6,753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Herbert George Wells is perhaps most well known today for his science-fiction novels but it was "The Outline of History" that initiated a new era of popular history. Although the harshest critics were from those who disagreed on ideological grounds, it's difficult to dismiss the depth of Wells' insights and prophetic accuracy. E.M. Forster and Beatrice Webb both praised the book on publication. It was this very book to which G.K. Chesterton responds in "The Everlasting Man" as does Hilaire Bellock in "A Companion to Mr. Wells's "Outline of History." "In re-living the entire life of Mankind as a single imaginative experience, Mr. Wells was achieving something which they themselves would hardly have dared to attempt ... In fact, the purpose and value of Mr. Wells's book seem to have been better appreciated by the general public than by the professional historians of the day
