A review of The Outline of History by H.G. Wells Volume One and Two from Goodreads...Although dated by the ongoing march of knowledge, it is still enjoyable to read Wells' writing and his different perspectives on historical events and figures. His passages on Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad are insightful and against the grain. The writing tends to weaken considerably near the end of WWI, and when another writer picked up the tale in WWII, all the British colonial biases began to seep into the story. But his emphasis on the human race evolving into a community of will. ****Robert Morrow
