L Ron Hubbard's Dianetics and Scientology books have been altered from his original writings and publications, and not for the better - the proof is in this and related articles attached.

The second edition – 1961 – was also available for this review and was found to be basically the same as 1976 printing used in this report. The very first – 1952 – edition of the book became available for this review and will be referred to throughout this report. The first edition (1988) copyrighted under "L. Ron Hubbard Library" was also available [ISBN: 0-88404-306-1].
Unlike Fundamentals of Thought and many other basic books, A History of Man was mainly meant for auditors and was initially released as a limited manuscript titled WHAT TO AUDIT. All the previous editions had a disclaimer on the first page stating this fact. The 2007 edition is missing this disclaimer.
There is a NOTE  in The Technical Bulletins of Dianetics and Scientology Volume I , page 266 (1st Edition, 1976) on A History of Man:
|“A History of Man, originally titled What to Audit, is dedicated to Mary Sue Hubbard who helped Ron do the research at Wichita in late 1951, and at Phoenix in 1952. …
A later edition made a few revisions and added in references to Scientology 8-8008, and in some cases substituted “8-8008” for “Technique 88.” ...”
Dedication to Mary Sue Hubbard and references to Scientology 8-8008 do NOT appear in 2007 version. Unless indicated otherwise, nearly all of the alterations identified in this report are in fact reversals to how it was in the first edition. Why exactly this was done in 2007 edition is quite unclear, and the text was already this way in 1988 edition. If Ron Hubbard wanted subsequent editions of this book to be updated with latest discoveries at the time, why change it back to how it was in the first edition?
Note! Bold formatting in citations was added to highlight key areas of alteration. Square brackets - [ ] - are used to insert notes where needed. Note, chapters did not have titles in 1968 edition.
|1968: CHAPTER ONE (beginning of chapter)||2007: Chapter One “How and What to Audit” (beginning of chapter)|
|There are two general problems in processing preclears. The first is HOW to audit, the second is WHAT to audit. The present volume presupposes that the skill necessary to the first problem has been mastered*: and there is good reason why this should be the case, for the present techniques of Dianetics are far from difficult, SCIENTOLOGY 8-8008** to all patents and purposes, putting the finishing touches on the knowledge necessary to handle thought.||THERE ARE TWO general problems in processing preclears.

The present volume presupposes that the skill necessary to the first problem has been mastered. And there is good reason why this should be the case, for the present techniques of Dianetics are far from difficult – Technique 80, to all intents and purposes, putting the finishing touches on the knowledge necessary to handle thought.

|Studying these incidents may be discovered to be restimulative to the student. If so, he would find auditing them as restimulative. However, such restimulation is very easily resolved and, unless he feels close to the end of tolerance, he should not be shy of auditing or studying the track.
In SCIENTOLOGY 8-8008, we have seen that creative processing is far superior to any other type of processing. Creative processing does not address the facsimiles as such; it breaks agreement on the power of the facsimiles. In order to audit a preclear, however, one should have a very good acquaintance with what the facsimiles contain. If he has this information, it is relatively simple for him to give the preclear “mock-ups” which approximate the material in facsimiles without telling the preclear why such mock-ups are being given to him; the facsimiles yet will themselves desensitize. The mock-ups should be parallel to the incidents which are given here, but should not be close enough to bring the preclear into the actual incident. For instance, in the matter of “FAC 1,” the preclear should be made to handle black boxes, cameras, things with handles on them and should handle them in any environment he chooses, but not the environment of FAC 1 itself. All the various conditions of FAC 1 can be approximated, preferably very widely until the preclear is no longer interested. In the matter of “FAC 1,” the auditor will find that, as soon as the preclear is given a black box on a tripod to handle, he may have a tendency to set it on a throne and have large numbers of people bow to it, or have the contraption he has mocked-up chasing him. Do not in any case let him get an actual FAC 1 “coffee-grinder”. This will become clearer as one audits. If the auditor knows of the existence of these incidents, and if he finds them in the preclear with an E-meter assessment, then he should use some solid geometry parallel of the material in the actual incident, such as a light bulb for a thetan, etc.
|Studying these incidents may be discovered to be restimulative to the student. If so, he would find auditing them as restimulative. However, such restimulation is very easily resolved and unless he feels close to the end of tolerance, he should not be shy of auditing or studying the track.|

|Before turning away from the above, try SCIENTOLOGY 8-8008 and learn again what it is to be truly FREE. An hour's auditing will prove it.||Before turning away from the above, try Technique 88 and learn again what it is to be truly FREE. An hour's auditing will prove it.|

|... If it doesn’t resolve, then the auditor simply doesn't know 8-8008 and that’s all there is to it.
Despite the fact that they are heavy, that they are strange, theta line incidents are easy to audit IF the auditor knows 8-8008. If the incidents are very hard to run, then the auditor DOESN'T know 8-8008.

|TECHNIQUE 88 is an E-meter technique. It can be run without an E-meter but this permits all manner of dodging and evading. And there are usually six or ten entirely different banks in any preclear beside his own – lots of places to dodge into. But SCIENTOLOGY 8-8008 solves all this for you.||Technique 88 is an E-Meter technique. It can be run without an E-Meter, but this permits all manner of dodging and evading.

|This is a cold-blooded and factual account of your last sixty trillion years.||THIS IS a cold-blooded and factual account of your last 76 trillion years.|
- It is "sixty trillion" in the first edition and in 1988 edition. Where did "76 trillion" come from in 2007 edition?

|Present life or any life that comes to view should be, to some extent, cleared up for the preclear. Lives are, to some degree, units in themselves. This is caused by the fact that each life while the preclear has been “with body” is lived with a different basic team: the GENETIC BEING carries on through the evolutionary line, parallel with the protoplasmic line, generation to generation, usually on the same planet – in this case, EARTH.||Present life, or any life that comes to view, should be to some extent cleared up for the preclear. This is very swiftly done with Symbological Processing, a volume of recent issue for use in counseling, or with an application of Technique 80 to this life or any life.|
Live are, to some extent, units in themselves. This is caused by the fact that each life, while the preclear has been “with body,” is lived with a different, basic team:

|Psychotics often DRAMATIZE (re-enact) these prenatal engrams and a trip through a sanatorium will show an auditor many prenatals in full play, running of like records, ending and starting again endlessly.
Here is the list of prenatals. They can be any combination of action known to the business of living, but these are the common ones.
|Psychotics often dramatize (re-enact) these prenatal engrams oand a trip through a sanitarium will show an auditor many prenatals in full play, running off like records, ending and starting again endlessly. (You get these people out of such dramatization by using Technique 80 with symbols as in Symbological Processing or by directly auditing the “overt acts” they have done against the family or, if the dramatization is the overt act in full play, auditing the “motivator” which is occasionally a prenatal.)|
Here is a list of prenatals. They can be any combination of action known to the business of living, but these are the common ones: ...

|"The first spiral which occurred 70 or 74 trillion years ago, might have been as long as a trillion years, but the next spiral after that was a little shorter."||“The first spiral, which occurred approximately 76 trillion years ago, might have been as long as a trillion years. But the next spiral after that was a little shorter."|
- It is "seventy or seventy-four" in 1988 edition; in the first edition a paragraph with this sentence does not exist.

|The other answer is to clean up present life with attention to all transfers in it, all switch transfers, all control transfers. Audit the thetan handling the body until you have the current life well up.||The other answer is to clean up present life with attention to all Transfers in it, all Switch Transfers, all control Transfers.

Note! The above list is by far not a list of all the differences that can be found in comparing the two books which also include breaking down or combining paragraphs, changing original punctuation, and other alterations. Also, the two sections appended at the end of 2007 (“A Step-by-Step Breakdown of 88” and “Additional Incidents on the Theta Line”) were not in 1968 publication. If Ron Hubbard wanted it included in “A History of Man” book, wouldn't he do that in 1968 publication?
