One approach to the rise and decline of Western Civilization, Civilization: The West and the Rest traces the rise of Western Civilization through its superiority in six areas: competition, science, property, medicine, consumption, and work ethic. Starting by looking at the recent crises in America--the financial sector meltdown, our foreign affairs in Iraq, and other problems we're currently facing--he turns to history as a way to diagnose our problems.
402 pages, indexed, softcover.
Please note that while this book approaches history from a conservative, western perspective, it is not 'Christian,' and therefore contains examples and quotes with strong profanity.
