Summary
  • Attempts a massive survey of science, from flint tools to the theory of relativity. A crawling infant, a performing athlete, development of the hunt, and discovery of fire are used to illustrate the most distinctive feature of man: imagination
  • Volume 1. A multitude of evolutionary changes, anatomical and intellectual, gives rise to man's superiority among the animals. New computer techniques illustrate humanity's evolution, while x-ray and slow motion photography of an Olympic athlete in action show the complex interweaving of mind and body. Volume 2. Man domesticates plant and animal life. With the Neolithic cultivators come the nomads and the roots of warfare. Cameras capture the unique lifestyle of the Bakhtiari tribe of central Iran and there recreate the war games of Genghis Khan
  • "...this 13-title series withstands the test of time and is an excellent resource for high-school and college students."--Booklist
