Library Lecture Series: History, Hope and Progress

December 5, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

History, Hope and Progress: Celebrating the Centennial of H.G. Wells’s “The Outline of History” with Justin E.A. Busch

“The Outline of History” is one of the most famous, popular and controversial histories ever written. Wells dismissed traditional nationally-centered histories, setting out instead to write a genuine history of humanity as a whole.

Within a decade, it had sold over two million copies in North America alone, and was being translated into many different languages. As one reviewer commented, “More persons who read the English language are interested in what H.G. Wells says than in what any other living man says.”

Join Quest Visiting Tutor Justin E.A. Busch for a lively examination of the controversies, the criticisms, and the reasons for the book’s tremendous success.
