From Thomas Cook to Voltaire, Brigham Young to T. S. Eliot, Mao Tse-tung the Chinese dictator to Han Van Meegeren the forger, this volume contains brief accounts of a very wide variety of men and women. It is not a book of reference or a biographical dictionary. The approach is less neutral. We have intended, rather, to illustrate the delightful diversity of mankind, at a time when we are all of us accused of thinking and feeling in the same way, of becoming an undifferentiated mass, or a series of masses from Moscow to London, London to San Francisco and Tokyo. More than a hundred years ago the concept of the "Average Man' Was invented by the Belgian scientist, Adolphe Quetelet, one of the many scientists we have included in Poeple. He is an impossible monster, this Average Man; he may be useful for statistics and sociology, for cartoons and condemnations, but he does not live down any street of any city in the world, in which all of the windows and the front doors may be the same; he does not exist, he never has existed, and never will exist. It is perhaps good to be reminded of that by the example of the saints and the bad men, the saviors and the destroyers, the philosophers and the eccentrics, the inventors and the explorers, the poets and the heroes, who fill this book - people of many countries, Europeans and Americans, Chinese and Indians, Persians and Japanese
