"Carroll Quigley, historian and teacher at Georgetown University, died January 5, 1977, leaving unfinished this manuscript upon which he had been working for the preceding twelve years. His colleagues and friends, upon reviewing the manuscript, decided to press forward with its publication. Although the manuscript is frustratingly incomplete in time sequence - it ends its narrative in the fifteenth century - it carries further toward completion the uniquely anthropological holistic analysis of history which is the theme of his earlier works... Quigley is incredibly successful in abstracting essence from reality - in analyzing mankind's experience in socializing. He describes weaponry as not an end in itself. It is part of a whole in which by far the greater part of persuasion and cooperation is accomplished by institutionalization of ideologies. This book is one of those human efforts which shapes the mind." - from Foreword by Harry J. Hogan. Moderate external wear. Some rubbing to large silver lettering upon front board. Light pencil underlining and marginal lines. Binding tight.
