Excerpts from Arthur Thormann’s book called Human Traits & Follies

Preface

This book explores how human beings may have been created, how they united themselves, built and lost empires, reached the present stage of development, and now head towards possible destruction.

The Chinese people are probably the earliest group of human beings who have successfully united and who have stayed successfully…

Excerpts from Arthur Thormann’s book called About My Books

Preface

The main reason I wrote my books is probably best expressed by Will and Ariel Durant, in page 102 of their book The Lessons of History:
