  • The Human Condition by William McNeill
    Princeton, 81 pp, £4.75, October 1980, ISBN 0 691 05317 0

Professor McNeill’s little book, The Human Condition, is in the genre of most of his other works – an attempt to grasp the grand sweep of history. Originally delivered as the Brand-Lee Lectures at Clark University, the book is an abstract of ideas developed in his earlier works, in particular Plagues and People (1977).
