 890 3,181

First published to coincide with the author’s celebrated television series, this is historian J.M. Roberts’ meditation on the nature of the dominance of Western civilization, its rise to global hegemony and its ambiguous ‘triumph’. J.M. Roberts believes that the most important gift we have received from Western civilization is a sustaining belief that humanity might control its own fate. Throughout these pages we can marvel at the rich pageantry of that legacy while tempering this with cautious optimism.
