Arnold Toynbee's ten-volume analysis of the rise and fall of civilizations is acknowledged as one of the great achievements of modern scholarship. D.C. Somervell's extraordinary two-volume abridgement has captured the method, atmosphere, texture, and, in many instances, the very words of the original. This volume contains the second half of Toynbee's masterpiece.
