Subhead: A History of the Human Community - University of Chicago Press, Chicago 1963, 829 pgs., index, illustrations


The book's contents make it an attempt at world history. The title pertains specifically only to the last section. But it appears the author's intention is to claim or show that the history described in the first and second section set the historical course that led to the third. The sections are:
Part I The Era of the Middle Eastern Dominance to 500 B.C.
Part II Eurasian Cultural Balance 500 B.C. - 1500 A.D.
Part III The Era of Western Dominance, 1500 A. D. to the Present
