New book - Civilisation

Roger Osborne
Civilization: a new history of the western world
Jonathan Cape, 2006, 909.098 OSB

What do we mean by civilization? Attempting to address this question, the author suggests that we can only understand and build on our civilization by re-examining and confronting our past. Telling the story of the Western world from its origins, Osborne covers many of the most significant events in its hostory, from the siege of Troy to the Gettysburg address and much more.
