The Rise of the West is a thought provoking analysis of a key event in world history - what events and factors led to the rise of the West to global supremacy when in 1200 China and the Islamic World were world leaders in science, technology and global trade and the West lagged far behind.
It considers the factors that led to the decline of China and the Islamic world and in particular the impact of Genghiz Khan on World history. It concludes by examining the specific cultural and historical factors that led to the rise of the West and considers the factors that lead to the rise and fall of civilisations in the global scientific, technological and economic race.
It is essential reading for anyone interested in world history and the history and rise and fall of the West.
The Rise of the West is the part of Polarshift - China, India and the Rise and Fall of the West.
