Will Durant would never have anticipated the series would be discontinued over political correctness. Some passages unambiguously--and accurately--state that civilizations are often destroyed by barbaric foreigners' unchecked fertility. We know how this can be read in today's context. It's just sad that the most sensitive non-fiction prose in the last century has been discontinued for the sake of barbarous sensitivities.
