Book Synopsis
“The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its former dimension.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
The idea that a history of Western cultures, covering 35,000 years, could be written to answer the questions, “What is culture? Where and why did it begin? and What makes it change?” stretches not the only the mind but also credulity. “A History of Western Cultures” offers well researched answers to these questions.
Volume Two attempts to turn a more objective light on the cities of Classical Athens, Jerusalem and Rome than is usually offered in mainstream treatments. This large-scale work resembles a tour through the old familiar museums of antiquity with a special twist. It peers behind the usual exhibits, unlocking closed off closets, and fills in crucial blanks left by long honored, material omissions as it unpacks the historical from the legendary verifiable from the phony.
