Civilizations of the West: The Human Adventure / Edition 2

The demise of the Soviet empire and the subsequent restructuring of international relations underscore the premise of this book. Our ability to relate to other cultures and peoples demands some understanding of their history and values, and without this understanding there can be no responsible citizenship, no informed judgment, and no effective commitment to seek peace and dignity for all.
