about

By investigating the major changes of world history during the past five hundred years, this book provides the necessary global perspective to understand the geopolitical and geoeconomic changes facing us today. We have reached a crucial transitional stage in world history in which the world will no longer be shaped by the single image of western modernism, but increasingly by the image of all cultures and civilizations. The need to take a world view--which this book provides--has become acute.
William Woodruff is Graduate Research Professor (Emeritus) in Economic History at the University of Florida, Gainesville.
