HOW THE WEST WON The Neglected Story of the Triumph of Modernity

by | Read by Kevin Foley

History • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Kevin Foley's narration pulls in listeners as Stark delves into a question that is often deemed politically incorrect: how and why Western World has achieved cultural primacy over the last millennia and why it matters to see that as a purposeful series of events rather than a collection of accidents, mistakes, and luck. The author credits the West for its developments with regard to individual freedoms and the pursuit of knowledge and rationality. Foley's deep, clear voice adds a level of weight to the book, and his rhythmic cadence and engaging tone keep the material engaging. Stark's prose is complemented by Foley's assured delivery.
