How the West Won

The Neglected Story of the Triumph of Modernity

By Rodney Stark

Regular price: $27.95

Special price: $22.36

In this page-turning, myth-busting history, acclaimed author Rodney Stark shows exactly why Western civilization triumphed over other cultures—and why we all should be thankful it did.

“Fortunately, a few unapologetic defenders of Western civilization can still be found. In How the West Won, Rodney Stark details how and why the vital aspects of modernity—defined here as a combination of sensible economic arrangements, political freedoms and scientific knowledge—developed in the West rather than elsewhere.” —Wall Street Journal

“Exposes gaping holes in the prevailing narrative.” —Crisis
