Books That Changed Mans Thinking

Rarely seen complete 29 volume collection.

If you ever wanted to know, how the written word has influenced and shaped our lives, this is a collection of some of the most significant and powerful books ever written. Conscious of the suffering that man inflicts upon man, many brave writers have spoken out against the State and exposed the evils of the time. Others, Freud and Darwin, challenged the accepted codes and beliefs of the day.

Under the title ‘Books That Have Changed Man’s Thinking’, Heron Books assembled many of the world’s most profound literary works. These are important books, books that the thinking person cannot ignore. They are books that will increase your understanding of the past, its effect on the present, and books which spotlight the dangers for the future. Some of the titles are surprising. Harriet Beecher Stowe’s ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’, for example not only a phenomenally successful novel but the book that fanned into a roaring blaze the revulsion of the time against slavery.
