The History of Human Society
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf. Country: United States. Date: 1965-78.

Series Note:
"This series will provide a picture of man's social life -- accurate, vivid, readable, free from cosmic theories, concerned with the diversity of human experience, analytic yet evocative, and charged with that sense of reality which only the finest scholarship can create. Its aim will be twofold -- to bring a full understanding of the societies described and to illustrate the growth of man's control over the physical universe."
