This comprehensive series of 48 lectures by an award-winning teacher and captivating lecturer will show you how - and why - this extraordinary transformation took place.
As you listen to the series, you'll begin to grasp not only the history of Western civilization, but the meaning of civilization itself, as this grand narrative of the past five centuries creates a coherent context for the period's events and trends, and offers an analysis of what these five centuries have bequeathed to us. Lecture by lecture, you'll explores the ideas, events, and characters that modeled Western political, social, religious, intellectual, cultural, scientific, technological, and economic history between the 16th and 20th centuries. You'll learn how Western civilization was shaped by the low as well as the mighty, the practical as well as the artistic. You'll gain a larger understanding of the political, social, and cultural events that shaped Europe. And you'll explore the ramifications of these epoch-making events on the rest of the world, including the United States.

Almost as good as part 1
I really loved the first part of the "Foundations of Western Civilization" course. It was a well-rounded approach to the history of western civilizations, and very enjoyable to listen to. The same is true of this audio book. However, be aware that this book is presented by an American for other Americans. As someone from Germany, I am a little sad that there is so much more focus on Britain and France than on (what would become) Germany. I can understand this and will not give less stars because of it. However, I think it is something you might want to know before buying this audio book.
