The outline of history : being a plain history of life and mankind by H. G Wells( Book )

13 editions published between 1920 and 2014 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Herbert George Wells is perhaps most well known today for his science-fiction novels but it was "The Outline of History" that initiated a new era of popular history. Although the harshest critics were from those who disagreed on ideological grounds, it's difficult to dismiss the depth of Wells' insights and prophetic accuracy. E.M. Forster and Beatrice Webb both praised the book on publication. It was this very book to which G.K. Chesterton responds in "The Everlasting Man" as does Hilaire Bellock in "A Companion to Mr. Wells's "Outline of History." "In re-living the entire life of Mankind as a single imaginative experience, Mr. Wells was achieving something which they themselves would hardly have dared to attempt ... In fact, the purpose and value of Mr. Wells's book seem to have been better appreciated by the general public than by the professional historians of the day

The history of a slave by Harry Johnston( Book )

26 editions published between 1887 and 2012 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Harry Hamilton Johnston (1858-1927) was an explorer, colonial administrator and main participant in the British expansion in Africa, along with his friend Cecil Rhodes. Johnston published several accounts of his expeditions, as well as surveying native languages and culture. This text is Johnston's fictionalised account of the life of a slave, based on anecdotes he gathered on his travels. The protagonist describes his early life as the warrior son of the village chief in a brutal society where cannibalism and allegations of witchcraft were commonplace. When slavers attacked his village and captured him, 'Abu' faced a long journey across the country, survived by few, before serving a succession of masters. A vivid and eventful history of one man's survival through escape attempts, attacks by wild animals and relentless violence, which Johnston described as his attempt to give 'a realistic sketch of life in the Western Sudan'
