Beschrijving

'A work of great confidence, empathy, learning and imagination' RORY STEWART 'Eye-popping, mind-blowing, ground-breaking' LUCY WORSLEY The West, history tells us, was built on the ideas and values of Ancient Greece and Rome, which disappeared from Europe during the Dark Ages and were then rediscovered by the Renaissance. But what if that isn't true? What if the story is very different? In this bold and magisterial work of immense scope, Josephine Quinn reveals a new narrative: one that traces the relationships that built what is now called the West from the Bronze Age to the Age of Exploration, as societies met, tangled and sometimes grew apart. She makes the case that it is contact and connections, rather than distinct and isolated civilisations, that drive historical change. It is not peoples that make history - people do.
