This book rests upon a considered view of our place in history and concentrates on `occidentalism' but follows Max Wever in suggesting that the crucial transition to the industrial age was more fortuitous than inevitable. Particular attention is paid to emphasising typologies of society that go beyond the Marxist canon. It will be of interest to sociology and history departments as well as being of interest to the general public.
