“In this wonderful book, Thomas Patterson effectively dethrones the concept of 'civilization' as an abstract good, transcending human society.”--Martin Bernal
Drawing on his extensive knowledge of early societies, Thomas C. Patterson shows how class, sexism, and racism have been integral to the appearance of “civilized” societies in Western Europe. He lays out clearly and simply how civilization, with its designs of “civilizing” and “being civilized,” has been closely tied to the rise of capitalism in Western Europe and the development of social classes.
