Première phrase
THE starting-point of this book was a search for fields of historical study which would be intelligible in themselves within their own limits of space and time, without reference to extraneous historical events. Lire la première page

5.0 étoiles sur 5 invaluable insights 26 avril 2008
Par M. Landers - Publié sur Amazon.com

Yes, Toynbee's point of view is a bit archaic. Yes, there are more detailed, more comprehensive studies of history done since his work. And, yes, even the abridgment is heavy reading. But the overview of civilizational development and decline done by Toynbee is unmatched anywhere. The second volume of the abridgment, written 60 years ago and describing civilizations going back thousands of years, is full of glaringly obvious parallels and invaluable insights into what is happening in the world today. Get both volumes of this superb work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 THE AUTHOR-APPROVED ABRIDGEMENT OF TOYNBEE'S 10-VOLUME "METAHISTORY" 30 août 2012
Par Steven H. Propp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Arnold Joseph Toynbee (1889-1975) was a British historian whose ten-volume 'A Study of History' was an extremely popular approach to historical writing. The first three volumes were released in 1933. The next three volumes were released in 1939. The last four volumes (on which this book is based) were published in 1954. The companion volume is A Study of History: Abridgement of Volumes I-VI.

He wrote, "We have seen that a universal church is apt to come to birth during a Time of Troubles following the breakdown of a civilization and to unfold itself within the political framework of the ensuing universal state. We have seen also... that the principal beneficiaries of the institutions maintained by universal states have been universal churches; and it is therefore not surprising that the champions of a universal state, whose fortunes are on the wane, should dislike the spectacle of a universal church growing within its bosom. The church is therefore likely to be regarded... as a social cancer responsible for the decline in the state." (Pg. 76)

He suggests, "If the foregoing inquiry has convinced us that the churches embodying the higher religions are ... of a spiritually higher order than the species represented by the civilizations, we shall be encouraged to go farther in our experiment of inverting our original assumption that the role of civilizations is dominant in History and the role of churches subordinate." (Pg. 109) He argues, the Papacy never "until galvanized into new life AFTER (and not before) the catastrophe of the Protestant succession, recovered from the moral and religious discredit in which its legalism had involved it. The downfall of both Empire and Papacy cleared the way in the West for the advance of the parochial state." (Pg. 247)

He observes, "the principle of Challenge and Response is the same all the way up and down the scale... Whatever it be, the Challenge is always God's offer of Freedom of choice to human souls." (Pg. 298) Later he adds, "in A.D. 1955 the crucial questions confronting Western Man were all religious." (Pg. 314) He concludes with a personal note: "Why do people study history? The present writer's personal answer would be that an historian, like anyone else who has had the happiness of having an aim in life, has found his vocation in a call from God to 'feel after Him and find Him.'" (Pg. 350)

Toynbee's entire 10-volume work will be seldom read these days; but this excellent abridgement (which was reviewed by, and approved, by Toynbee himself) is a much more "accessible" way of encountering him.

I ordered this from a "Sample" of a Study of History VII - X, which is mislabeled in your records as A Study of History I - VI in both the sample selection and the book purchase selection. I would like to know how I can get A Study of History VII -X, Arnold Toynbee. Also you should change your labeling because as is, it is very confusing.

Thanks
