Kort biografi
Chaya (or Ada) Kaufman was born in Ukraine and emigrated with her family to the USA. In 1913, while a 15-year-old schoolgirl in New York City, she fell in love with and married Will Durant, one of her teachers. The most famous story told about her is that she was so young, she arrived at City Hall on rollerskates for their wedding. Durant called her Ariel, and she later adopted the name legally. She was involved with her husband in the writing of every volume of The Story of Civilization but only received author credit for the volumes published in 1961 and after. She shared the Pulitzer Prize in 1968 for "Rousseau and Revolution."

The Story of Civilization by the Durants: Yea or Nay? i Non-Fiction Readers (december 2021)

Recensioner

Dramatic and opinionated review of the great thought-leaders of the Western canon. Misinterpreted Hellenistic philosophy schools, in my mind. Nevertheless, presents history and philosophical questions with a flourish and entertaining style.

Classic Durant. Exhaustively detailed, delightfully opinionated.

Mr. Durant covers the period between the reign of Elizabeth I of England and the beginning of Louis XIV's reign in France. The Stuarts, the Thirty Years War, and Richelieu all figure conspicuously herein. Durant manages to convey vast knowledge pleasantly, reasonably accurately, and completely.
