5.0 out of 5 stars There seem to be several negative reviews of M. Rollin... Feb. 5 2013
By Joyce Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
based upon a lack of knowledge about the author's place in history. He was a French historian who lived from 1661 to 1741. If you find his writing-style and worldview archaic, it's because it is. Please don't buy this book thinking you will get a politically correct text written in watered down English. Also, try to restrain yourselves from making negative reviews because you didn't take the time to understand what it was you were buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and enlightening... March 8 2012
By theTingster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been on a recent adventure reading histories of the world and ancient peoples. This book has been a great supplement to my study. One of my favorite things about studying history is trying to place things I know about with events that are transpiring at the same time in different parts of the world. This book contains a lot of information, names places and times. It may take a couple readings to absorb it all.

As a historian I am drawn to these books and I was grateful to be able to read this. It's not all boring and stuffy, it's readable and easily followed. So, if you love history, read this. You will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finest History June 22 2013
By L. Aaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I read a great deal of history and rarely do I read something of such profundity and depth. He writes without the timidity of the post-modern author, which is always too concerned with poltical correctess to say anything meanigful. This is history in it's fullest majesty.

4.0 out of 5 stars thorough April 8 2014
By Mike Rosborough - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I appreciated the perspective given in Rollin's overview of the roots of early civilizations. Considering it was written in the 18th century, he introduced interesting and detailed information to the subject . He colored in the lines from Herodotus and gave a readable lesson in the rise and fall of early cultures.
