堪称《明朝那些事儿》的欧洲版《欧洲那些事儿》。

房龙用生动流畅的文字,将人类数千年的文明发展史呈现在读者的面前。他从远古讲起,讲述埃及和美索不达米亚文明的源起,讲述希腊与罗马时代的辉煌,沿着宗教兴起的线索讲述到中世纪社会的发展和演变,从城市的兴起、文艺复兴、讲述到世界性的变革和各国的革命。在追溯到一些主要国家的历史线索时,也讲述了一些重要历史人物的故事,评述他们的功过。

Written for his children (Hansje and Willem), The Story of Mankind tells in brief chapters the history of western civilization beginning with primitive man, covering the development of writing, art, and architecture, the rise of major religions, and the formation of the modern (for 1921) nation-state. Van Loon explains in the book how he selected what and what not to include by subjecting all materials to the question: Did the person or event in question perform an act without which the entire history of civilization would have been different? In 1922, it was the first book to be awarded the Newbery Medal for an outstanding contribution to children's literature.

亨德里克·威廉·房龙(1882年1月14日-1944年3月11日),荷兰裔美国人。历史通俗读物作家、插图画家。房龙的作品多以散文的形式叙述、评论历史事件及人物,他生动诙谐的文笔使读者能在短时间内以一种轻松的方式了解历史的大致脉络,并配上亲手绘制之许多生动插图,提高阅读的趣味,因此很受一般的读者欢迎。他的书在美国十分畅销,拥有惊人的销售量。但在历史学研究上,房龙则并未取得相应的学术地位与成就,基本上是被定位于一位“优秀的通俗历史作家”。

Hendrik Willem van Loon (January 14, 1882 – March 11, 1944) was a Dutch-American historian, journalist, and award-winning children's book author.
