About the Author:

J.M. Roberts was educated at Taunton school and Keble College, Oxford. He has been Vice-Chancellor of the University of Southampton and Warden of Merton College, Oxford.

From Library Journal:

In 1900, "Western" and "civilized" seemed synonymous, with Western culture spreading over the globe and bringing progress everywhere. Eighty years later, there is an uneasy feeling that Western hegemony may have shot its bolt. In this companion volume to a BBC series, a distinguished British historian looks at the development of Western culture and its universal influence. Even resistance to the West, Roberts points out, usually takes forms borrowed from Western culture. At its core, he concludes, Western civilization is an audacious championship of humans as a unique, change-making species and of the value of the individual. Larger collections should purchase; worth considering for any general collection. Nancy C. Cridland, Indiana Univ. Libs., Bloomington
