In concrete and vigorous prose H. G. Wells tells the story of the planet from its geological beginnings to the First World War. Combining his experience as teacher, reformer, scientist and novelist, he considers the effects of economic, social and political change 'shorn of elaborations and complications'. But the great theme of this balanced, humane and imaginative synthesis is a profound importance of ideas: the cultural impact of religions and philosophies, of scientific and technological discoveries.
