NEW YORK (AP) - One of the 20th century's most popular historical series, Will and Ariel Durant's "The Story of Civilization," is coming back in digital form.
Simon & Schuster announced Tuesday that all 11 volumes, long out of print, are now available as ebooks _ separately and collectively. The original books sold hundreds of thousands of copies even as critics sometimes questioned the Durants' scholarship.
The husband and wife team worked on the series for decades and won a Pulitzer in 1968 for the 10th volume, "Rousseau and Revolution." The Durants died within weeks of each other in 1981.
