Description
Perhaps the hallmark of Western civilization over the past five hundred years is the series of liberation struggles which secured many of our most basic rights and freedoms, argues the author of Descartes. The overthrow of many monarchies and the declining influence of the church paved the way for democracy, which in turn made possible the abolition of slavery, the introduction of free public education, the enfranchisement of women, and the civil rights movement. In this history—which features 16 pages of illustrations—A.C. Grayling also profiles such revolutionary individuals as Mary Wollstonecraft, Rosa Parks, Tom Paine, and Denis Diderot.
