From the dust jacket: "Western civilization is unique. The view that the scientific and moral achievements of the West are its own, not derived from the Classical world or from the Bible, was first popularized by Oswald Spengler. In 'The Might of the West,' Lawrence R. Brown, an engineer with a broad grasp of science and history, demonstrates this uniqueness without recourse to Spengler's mysticism. The author insists that the fate of the West, like that of other civilizations, rests in the hands of men, not in a destiny that inexorably determines its dying and its death."
