Summary
"The wars between East and West have not only been the longest and most costly in human history, they have also formed the West's vision of itself as independent, free, secular, and now democratic. They have shaped, and continue to shape, the nature of the modern world."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
Anthony Pagden presents a sweeping history of the long struggle between East and West, from the Greeks to the present day. Throughout we learn a tremendous amount about what 'East' and 'West' were and are, and how it has always been competing worldviews and psychologies, more than religion or power grabs, that have fed the mistrust and violence between East and West
