The narrator was great
The author tells the story as it is. The story comes across as balanced without being patronizing or apologetic.
this is a rather patronizing eurocentric view of history. there is nothing particularly unique in the ascendancy of western civilization. Just as the Babylonian, Egyptian, Indian and Chinese civilizations of the past flowered, reached their peaks then declined, so too will western civilization decline and be replaced by another.
What a singular man !!!
Never knew Genghis Khan and the mongols pioneered many of the conventions of international trade and diplomacy we now take for granted.
