The Search for Order: Landmarks of World Civilizationby Marc A. Meyer
Topics such as individualism,communal obligation,tradition and change,and humanity's relationship with the divine and nature from 1500 to the present figure prominently in this book. These chronologically and geographically grouped selections are drawn exclusively from historical sources and are arranged into three broad historical periods to allow for greater flexibility. Educator's are recommending that courses in world civilizations be included in general education programs,and interest as well as enrollments have increased dramatically over the last few years. The Search for Order is a partial response to this academic turn of events.
