In this ambitious exploration of humanity and civilizations throughout history, major historical events and processes in the history of mankind are looked at in order to understand the "currents" of history. Jaroslav Krejc analyzes the whole history of civilization and considers historical events such as feudalism and the development of science. By bringing both sociological and historical insights to this broad subject, and particular attention to different types of knowledge (such as religion and its impact; state law; labor and ownership), the book offers insights into the future of civilization and shifting global power.

"[T]his book may be characterized as historical sociology informed by theory, sensitive to ideas, and enriched by a lively, provocative intelligence... Recommended." - CHOICE
