This special limited edition marks the 10th anniversary of the completion of Clark's work and brings it up to date. The abridgement re-orchestrates the six-volume classic and as the narrative ranges from 1788 to the threshold of WWII, Cathcart never loses sight of Clark's sympathies and understanding.
