ProvidingMoreThis engaging text offers a brief, readable description of our common Western heritage after Europe expanded into the rest of the world during the Renaissance, then through revolutions that have created todays technological global society. Providing a tightly focused narrative and interpretive structure, Brian A. Pavlac covers the basic historical information that all educated adults should know. His joined terms supremacies and diversities develop major themes of conflict and creativity throughout history. Supremacies centers on the use of power to dominate societies, ranging from warfare to ideologies.

Supremacy, Pavlac shows, seeks stability, order, and incorporation. Diversities encompasses the creative impulse that produces new ideas, as well as efforts of groups of people to define themselves as different. Diversity creates change, opportunity, and individuality.

These concepts of historical tension and change, whether applied to political, economic, technological, social, or cultural trends, offer a cohesive explanatory organization. The text is also informed by five other topical themes: technological innovation, migration and conquest, political and economic decision-making, church and state, and disputes about the meaning of life. Throughout, judicious basic principles present summaries of historical realities. Written with flair, this easily accessible yet deeply knowledgeable text provides all the essentials for a course on Western civilization.
