Civilization: The West and the Rest
Western civilization's rise to global dominance is the single most important historical phenomenon of the past five centuries.How did the West overtake its Eastern rivals? And has the zenith of Western power now passed? Acclaimed historian Niall Ferguson argues that beginning in the fifteenth century, the West developed six powerful new concepts, or "killer applications" - competition, science, the rule of law, modern medicine, consumerism, and the work ethic - that the Rest lacked, allowing it to surge past all other competitors.
