Civilization: The West and the Rest
Sam Reaves's review
Aug 30, 2012
Why did Western, i.e. European, civilization come to dominate the world for most of the past five hundred years? And can that dominance be taken for granted? Ferguson takes a hard look at why civilizations rise and fall. Big-picture history, full of eyebrow-raising facts and insights.
