Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An overview of Western civilization that does justice to its richness and variety, and calls attention to certain themes: the development of political freedom, constitutional government, and concern for the rule of law and individual rights; the shifting relations among religion, society, and the state; the development of science and technology and their expanding impact on thought, social institutions, and everyday life; and the major religious and intellectual currents that have shaped Western culture.
