By Stratiotes Doxha Theon VINE VOICE on October 13, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This concise little work attempts to cover the rise of nations from the crumbling Roman and Byzantine empires and the progress of Christianity all in less than 250 pages. Amazingly, the feat is accomplished with entertaining text. There is one shortfall in that there are no maps but the political characters and the events that brought about the European nations are given life. Very well done and a wonderful overview in its brevity and clarrity without paying the expense of literary color.

Format: Hardcover
Christopher Dawson will delight anyone who considers himself a history buff. this book is probably the best introduction to western (Christian) history that one can get his hands on. it covers a lot of bases and shows a true understand of the development of Christianity in the west throughout the ages. The brilliance of this book lies in several things. The clarity and organization of his writing, the ability to connect the dots, and the ability to turn all stones. He is able to draw some very basic principles about the monastics, who were essentially the older version of the Catholic missionaries, and shows their particular relevance to the development of western (European) culture. He also give praise where praise is due. There is no single (major) religion that has not contributed to the general understanding and preservation of the Catholic tradition.
Dawson was well respected in his time by his colleagues, yet remains relatively unknown today. I certainly hope that his work experiences a revival, especially in this current 'dark age' of the west.
