In this illuminating account, one of the century's greatest historians surveys "the main contemporary civilizations." Separate sections examine the Muslim world, Black Africa, the Far East, Western Europe (from the fall of the Roman Empire to political union), "the other Europe" to the East, the European civiliations of the New World, and the "English-speaking universe". Even an educational text, Braudel once suggested, can be "a tale of adventure"-provided it is written with a "simplicity that is clarity, the light of intelligence". This clarity is present throughout A HISTORY OF CIVILIZATIONS. 600 pages, softcover.
Written in 1962 as the basis for a history course, this curious book is a history of the civilizations of the modern world (from the 8th century on), written in terms of the broad sweep and continuities of history, rather than event-based. Starting with the civilizations of Islam and the Far East, Braudel takes a consciously anti-ethnocentric approach, which is in education terms almost as radical now, as it was when the French ministry of education rejected it as a basis for school history teaching in 1962.
